Day Tripping: Mount Hutt

The last day of season arrived , the weather was just magical and it was the weekend.When everything aligned so perfectly , the much longed for trip had to happen! DSC_0010Mount Hutt is the largest ski area in the South Island, about an hour’s drive from Christchurch. The views up hill and down were just spectacular.

DSC_0230The parking area is very neatly organised and so we found a parking without much difficulty.

DSC_0141.jpgSnow jackets , pants and boots plus the ski/ snowboarding gear are all available for hire. DSC_0102.jpgQuick lessons are offered for people without skiing/snowing boarding experience as well,so that no one feels like they’ve missed out.
