Mt Hutt Ski Field

Mt Hutt is the most popular ski field in the Canterbury region, and a firm favourite with Christchurch locals. We recommend you stay near the village of Methven which is just a short 40 minute drive to the ski field or take one of the regular shuttles from the village. Mt Hutt offers 365 hectares of skiable terrain for you to explore, with the longest run a lengthy 2km. With its mixture of 25% beginners, 50% intermediate and 25% advanced terrain there are a range of trails for everyone to conquer. Food and beverages are available at Huber's Hut and Ski High Cafe where you can recharge your batteries for your next run. For visitors to the South Island it's easy to hire all the gear you need on the mountain, so all you need to bring is your enthusiasm. For the littlies there is a licensed child's creche for 3 months to 5yrs and a snow sports school for both kids and adults who are finding their snow legs.
