Silver Partners

Officially New Zealand’s Best Ski Resort for the seventh year in a row. Mt Hutt is Canterbury’s big friendly mountain with some of the most consistent snowfall in the country delivering a long, white season.

At an altitude of 2086m with a 683 vertical drop Mt Hutt boasts the South Island’s highest chairlift, leg-burning runs and some of the country’s most spectacular views.

As well as genuine Kiwi hospitality guests can enjoy wide groomed slopes, lift access for all abilities, top to bottom terrain parks and some of the best off-piste skiing around. Mt Hutt has 365 ha of skiable terrain and state of the art snowmaking to top up the slopes. Mt Hutt is striving to become carbon neutral. To achieve this, substantial investment has been put into upgrading equipment, waste management initiatives and native planting. Another goal has been to bring back the kea to Mt Hutt. In winter 2020 this was achieved. The first kea in three years visited the mountain, which thrilled the team and guests. Mt Hutt hopes to encourage more native birds back to the mountain by creating a habitable environment for them through pest eradication and native planting.
