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! Mount 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.
The parking area is very neatly organised and so we found a parking without much difficulty.
Snow jackets , pants and boots plus the ski/ snowboarding gear are all available for hire. Quick lessons are offered for people without skiing/snowing boarding experience as well,so that no one feels like they’ve missed out. And of course there are events held for the more experienced to compete in.Simply awestruck by the control and skill displayed by some of the participants. The cafe there offers a nice variety of hot food and the view from the deck and inside the cafe of the ski field is just fantastic.
