Overview

Nestled high inside the eastern rim of the Southern Alps is Mt. Hutt Ski Area, overlooking the patchwork quilt of the Canterbury Plains with the blue Pacific Ocean in the far distance.

Mt. Hutt has plenty of adrenaline-pumping black diamond runs on the South Face, and lots of wide open terrain for first-time skiers. Snowmaking starts as early as mid-May.
