Mount Olympus

South Island, New Zealand

About Mount Olympus

Aside from being the home of Greek Gods and mythology, Mt Olympus is also a unique alpine experience, set in a high, south-facing basin at the southern end of the Craigieburn Range in the Canterbury High Country. Famous for a superb balance of terrain, a sheltered aspect and the ability to capture dry powder delivered by southerly storms out of Antarctica, it’s no wonder that Mt Olympus is a mecca for New Zealand’s big mountain, backcountry and freeski enthusiasts.
