Visitor Reviews of Mount Hutt

Butch Stern from New Zealand writes:

I have been skiing Mt Hutt for the past 25 years. It has a mixed terrain that provides consistent challenges and enjoyment. The food and hospitality are good, the road is a challenge. Methven is a great town.
If you are looking for tree skiing, it is not there and the weather can come in strong. Being there is time well spent. Methven is a great community. Enjoy it, I do.
