Mt Hutt is Canterbury’s own ‘big mountain’ with runs to accommodate families on a fun day in the snow as well as the variety it takes to entice even the hottest skiers and snowboarders, attracting people from all over the world. Yet you can still sense the local pride. This is Canterbury’s ski area.
The summit 6 seat high-speed chairlift takes you to the highest point of any ski area in the South Island. From feeling on top of the world, you can cruise down the legendary ‘Broadway’ or take on the chutes and steeps of ‘Towers’. Then when your day on the slopes is done, you can relax with the real NZ flavour that’s unmistakably the country town of Methven.
