Mt Hutt Ski Area, South Island

#7 of 29 in Winter Sports in New Zealand
Must see · Mountain · Ski Area
Get the most out of winter at Mt Hutt Ski Area, South Island's go-to ski resort with a vertical height of 683 m (2,240 ft). The mountain offers a variety of ski levels and lifts, with a beginners' area as well as a large off-piste territory, and plenty of intermediate and advanced runs in between. High-speed chair lifts whisk eager skiers and snowboarders to the top, while the world's first fully enclosed magic carpet calms beginner's nerves. Refuel at either the full restaurant or cafe at the mountain's base after a day on the slopes. There are no accommodations on the mountain, but plenty of offerings nearby. Planning Windwhistle trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

  • First time at Mt Hutt and easy to book travel, passes and lessons. Quality private lessons and even a ride to the top of the mountain for those not skiing- views incredible!  more »
  • Management encourage schoolyard behaviour within their company. Never skiing on this mountain again, After over 10 years loyally returning to ski. Small minds live in small worlds.  more »
  • Would have to be the most welcoming and friendly ski field in the Southern Hemisphere. The focus is skiing, doesn’t matter your skill level. The facilities are great, the runs are awesome and varied. Guest Services make everyone feel special. Many thanks to the ski instructing team especially Rachael and Sam.
  • Was on an alpine flora tour and the variety and beauty of the plants was amazing. The views of the Canterbury plains just added value- a great summer trip.
