Ski Mt Hutt

Satisfy your cravings for carving. Only a 2-hour drive from Christchurch, Mt Hutt’s winter wonderland is waiting for you! As the mountain with the most average annual snowfall in New Zealand, Mt Hutt sure aims to please!

683m vertical drop in a 365 hectares big area is waiting for you. Ski Mt Hutt on two surface lifts and three chairlift, one of which is the new, superfast 8-seater (the first one in New Zealand)!
Two restaurants and two bars are there to cater to your every need when you need a break from the slopes.

Getting to the mountain has never been easier. In the morning, a shuttle bus brings you from your accommodation to Mt Hutt and back again in the evening. 

Good to know for families: Kids under 7 ski free on Mt Hutt! For every paying adult, a ski pass for a child under 7 years is free of charge. So if you’re 2 adults and 2 young children, you only pay for the two adults. Skiing just got so much more affordable!

Your accommodation in Methven

Your accommodation is the charming 3* Southern Cross Lodge in Methven. The hosts of this unostentatious hotel are famous for their exceptional southern hospitality. 

After an exhausting day of skiing Mt Hutt, there’s nothing better than to relax in front of a warm, crackling log fire with a glass of mulled wine and play some pool with the other hotel guests. 

The hotel rooms are cosy and functional with an ensuite bathroom, some of the rooms have been renovated recently. Family rooms are available, too. 

New to Methven in 2021: Opuke Thermal Pools & Spa in Methven is expected to open in August 2021. Your apres-ski relaxation just got even more relaxing. Ask me about the opening date and how to get tickets!
