Mt Hutt in Christchurch, New Zealand is a premier ski resort and a fantastic destination for those wishing to experience a laid back, fun ski holiday. The substantial vertical drops here have earned the area the title of the “capital of speed” with thigh burn guaranteed. The 360 hectares of treeless terrain here is perfect for all levels of ability ranging from beginner and intermediate to advanced levels on the wide variety of of-piste lines.
Due to recent infrastructure development that has been performed to significantly improve the efficiency of the lifts there are hardly ever any queues and new terrain parks have also been created to cater for freestylers.
Due to the exposed nature of Mt Hutt it provides views that are nothing short of extraordinary. On a clear day you can see right across the Canterbury Plains to the Pacific. Over the back of the mountain there are amazing views of the snow-covered Southern Alps which seem to go on forever.
Excellent accommodation and restaurant facilities can be found in the nearby town of Methven which is a beautiful country town full of character and located only a short distance from the resort itself.
