Porters Ski Area, formally known as Porter Heights, is a ski field located on New Zealand’s South Island. Porters Ski area is situated on the southern end of the Craigieburn Range and only 85km from Christchurch.

Porters was founded as a club ski field and even though many of the facilities are upgraded and modern, Porters still retains the warm inviting atmosphere that local club ski fields are known for. Porters Ski Area is great for beginners and advanced skiers and riders alike.

Visitors are also treated to great views of the Southern Alps and Mt.Cook.
