Mt Hutt

Located high in the Southern Alps, Canterbury’s Mt Hutt is firmly linked to the pioneering tradition of the region’s high country. A vast mountain with 472 hectares of diverse terrain, Mt Hutt offers a challenging and exciting snow experience.

Mt Hutt’s lift and trail system, recently redeveloped, has made it a candidate for possibly one of the best lift and terrain mixes in the South Island. Mt. Hutt has also seen the addition of more snowmaking, base building development and a new mini terrain park for beginners and novices.

Mt Hutt offers all levels of skier and rider an awesome winter experience. Trails, off-piste, terrain parks and halfpipe are accessed by a six seater express chairlift, an express quad chair, a triple chair and a 140m long surface conveyor lift. Each winter, there is the opportunity to watch the many of the world’s best ski racers who come down under for training.

Mt Hutt is a 90-minute drive from Christchurch and 35-minutes from Methven. Ski shuttles offer daily services to and from Methven. Children aged six and under get a free day pass and there is a licensed Skiwiland Crèche and kid’s facilities.
