Mt Hutt ski field is located near Methven in the South Island. Views from the top of Mt Hutt's 2086m are breathtaking - on a clear day you can see all the way from the Pacific Ocean to the heart of the Southern Alps.
Mt Hutt is usually the first ski-field in the Southern Hemisphere to open at the beginning of each season and has the largest skiable area in the South Island. There is plenty of terrain available for all abilities with a well developed trail network, a 10000sqm terrain park with halfpipe, triple black diamond runs and steep chutes, including one of the largest vertical drops in the South Island.
A laidback atmosphere reflecting the rural Kiwi approach to life defines Mt Hutt while recent developments ensure world class facilities and service.
There is no accommodation on the mountain so most visitors stay in the nearby town of Methven, a 35 minute drive to the mountain.
