Mt Hutt Ski Area

Popular Canterbury snow sports spot

Getting There

Mt Hutt is a popular ski area that catches plenty of snow that falls on the eastern side of the Southern Alps. About half the terrain is intermediate and another quarter suitable for beginners, making this a popular place for family skiing and a good place to learn to snowboard. Everything is here, including rentals and lessons.

The skifield is 26km from Methven, which becomes a bubbling little town in winter, and about two hours’ drive from Christchurch.
