Want to experience our spectacular mountain environment, but not yet ready to ski? Mt Hutt offers a wide range of activities for everyone, young and old. So unlock some of the best views in Canterbury and take in the thrill of a ski area, as you ride the chairlifts to expansive vistas of the Canterbury Plains and Southern Alps.



Sit back and enjoy a chairlift ride to world famous views overlooking the Canterbury Plains and back to the main divide of the Southern Alps. Suitable for all and perfect for families! Last chair from 3:30pm (subject to conditions).

Scenic Lift Passes are available to purchase at Guest Services at Mt Hutt. One pass gives a single chairlift ride.

Dress warm for winter alpine conditions. Minimum height of 80cm and must be accompanied by an adult. Appropriate closed footwear is mandatory and can be hired on mountain if required.


Perfect for the whole family! Share the smiles in Mt Hutt’s dedicated snow play area. Make snow angels, throw snowballs and feel the wind through your hair as you fly down the slope on a toboggan (bring your own or available for purchase in our Snow Shop). Perfect for family fun!

Hot Tub!

Soak up the views from the highest altitude spa in New Zealand! Perched on the top of Hutt, and accessible from the Summit Six Chairlift, Alpine Spas have kitted us out with a spa that has all the bells and whistles. Sit back, let the beats drop and soak it up.
