  • Another reviewer couldn’t be further from the truth. The manager at Porters goes out of his way to help clients and lifts are all not (did you mean to include 'not', ed?) closed when the weather conditions make it unsafe for them to operate - and this information is communicated on their website in advance. If Mt Hutt is closed you can bet Porters will be open due to the different orientation of the slopes. No queues at Porters and extremely friendly staff. Closest skifield to Christchurch, best value for money and in my opinion some of the best off-piste runs in the area.
