There’s a mountain that rises out of the Canterbury Plains that the locals are proud to call their own and that everyone else reveres. Voted New Zealand’s best Ski Resort at the 2015 World Ski Awards, Mt Hutt is high and it’s wide. Most days at the summit you can see from one side of the country to the other, from the jagged spine of the Southern Alps to the West, right across the patchwork of pastureland to the Pacifi Ocean on the East. Mt Hutt is Canterbury’s own “big mountain” with runs to accommodate families on a fun day in the snow, as well as the variety it takes to entice even the hottest skiers and snowboarders. Mt Hutt attracts people from all over the world, yet you can still sense the local pride. This is Canterbury’s ski area.
