Canterbury’s Mt Hutt Ski Area is a vast mountain with diverse terrain and a high country pioneering character. A six seater chairlift, a dedicated quad chair, a triple chair and a beginners’ surface conveyor lift deliver all levels and styles of skiers and riders to fantastic groomed runs, off-piste and parks. Scheduled to open on June 14, Mt Hutt will again become a national and international destination for many of the world’s best ski racers who rate the mountain as the best Southern Hemisphere training ground. Mt Hutt is family and beginner friendly with a great Snowsports School and a licensed Skiwiland Crèche. Children six and under get a free day pass.

Visitor Reviews of Mount Hutt

Jon B from Australia writes:

I have skied a lot of huge resorts in USA, Canada and France which have dozens of lifts and over 100Km of trails. But Mt Hutt gives me as much fun as anywhere. It does get winds periodically, and it does rack up an average of around 20 days closed per season. A 3 day trip can occasionally be disastrous, but if you do a full week you will have more than enough awesome skiing and maybe a "rest day" or two.
