Porters is the closest ski area to Christchurch; rising to just under 2000 metres, Porters offers spectacular views of the Southern Alps of New Zealand and the skiing/boarding is suitable for all abilities, from first timers to experts. Advanced skiers and boarders will love two of New Zealand's legendary runs; Bluff Face and the awesome Big Mama. Specialist grooming offers supreme piste skiing as well as great intermediate terrain park, while the off-piste terrain is excellent for the more adventurous.

New for the 2015 winter season are a brand new Doppelmayr fixed grip quad chairlift and a new beginners area, created adjacent to the existing intermediate lift. The recently upgraded snowmaking system (2014) will help to maintain a consistent cover and quality of snow down the “Easy Street” slope. All slopes are now within easy reach. From the chairlift offload, the upper mountain can be accessed by 3 T-Bars offering a vast variety of intermediate and advanced terrain. Last but not least, Porters is introducing a new RFID lift pass system.

Good atmosphere. Excellent terrain park, good off-piste, good facilities. Snow quality can be sketchy but great after a dump!!!
