 About Mt Hutt & Methven


Methven, in the Canterbury region of New Zealand’s South Island, feels a bit like a selfish little secret; a place so special that once you discover it, you want to keep it to yourself and don’t feel inclined to share it.

Just a 35-minute drive from Methven village, Mt Hutt is renowned for its big snow. Great natural snow is captured in its south facing basin and combined with 75 snow guns, Mt Hutt consistently has one of the longest snow seasons in the South Island.

In 2015 Mt Hutt was announced as the Best Ski Resort at the World Ski Awards – Find out Why this Winter.
