Self Drive

Mt Hutt is located a 90 minute drive from Christchurch Airport and around a 30 minute drive from nearby Methven. If you’re driving yourself, please be aware than snow chains must be carried at all times, in case of inclement weather. If chain fitting is required, we run a hire and fit service from the bottom of our access road. Please be aware that we may not have chains to fit low profile or lager 4WD tyres.

If you are not confident driving on alpine roads in winter conditions, we suggest catching the bus to Mt Hutt. See out other options for getting up the mountain for an awesome day on the snow!
