It caters for a wide range of skiiers, with a "magic carpet" lift for beginners, good intermediate and advanced runs, and access to large off-piste areas. The most advanced runs on the mountain are through the rock formations at the top of the field known as "The Towers", and the South Face.


The snow season is from June to October/November. Mount Hutt Prides itself on and historically has been the first ski-field in the Southern Hemisphere to open at the beginning of each season. However, its steep thirteen kilometre access road is prone to closure in poor weather.


For the 2005 season Mt Hutt installed a high speed 6 seat chairlift, so the journey to the top of the ski field is now only 6 minutes.


Since there is no accommodation on the mountain, most visitors stay in the nearby small town of Methven or in the city of Christchurch. Methven is a small town in the Canterbury region of the South Island of New Zealand. ... For other uses, see Christchurch (disambiguation). ...
