Officially New Zealand’s Best Ski Resort for the fourth year in a row (Mt Hutt was voted New Zealand’s Best Ski Resort in 2015, ’16, ’17 and ’18 at the World Ski Awards), Mt Hutt is New Zealand’s big friendly mountain with snowfall and altitude delivering a long, white season.

As well as Kiwi hospitality, enjoy wide groomed slopes, all-lift access for all abilities, top to bottom terrain parks with world class jumps and some of the best off-piste skiing around.

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.
