Matariki Viewing

June 28 | 4:30 AM - 9:00 AM

Come join an epic celebration of Matariki

We welcome all to come join us for a hot pool, star gazing and ski session to celebrate Matariki.

Start your morning with a one off Matariki soak at Ōpuke Thermal Pools (limited spots) followed by a First Tracks experience at Mt Hutt (limited spots and outside of normal First Tracks) 

Weather permitting, we will get you to the summit to enjoy Matariki from one of the best viewing platforms around. We welcome the Matariki celebrations with a karakia (Māori incantations and prayer used to invoke spiritual guidance and protection). Catch the surrounding views at 2086m and get in a few early laps as the sun comes up. Non skiing sight-seeing / star gazers welcome.
