Snow Report Last Updated: Mon 15 Jul 16:00 PM

Cloudy, but mainly fine about the summit. Northerlies.

It’s 4pm and Mt Hutt is now closed for the day. Thank you to everyone who visited us today, if you didn’t make it up today, here’s what you missed:

"Currently we have some high cloud above the main basin and light winds (40-50kph) across the summit. Cold temps today so please dress warmly. 

Our grooming team has been out refreshing trails and smoothing things out for another banger day. 

The best skiing and riding will be on the groomed trails today providing a chalky, packed-powder snow surface that will become increasingly firm in high traffic areas as the day unfolds. 

Snow cover off trail remains thin so please ski and ride with care. 

Be warned: Highway 72 is a SLOW ZONE where you must match the speed of others around you. Our Slope Safety team will be in action again today - failure to respect the snow code could result in pass suspension."

Tomorrow’s weather forecast according to MetService.com is Cloudy with a few showers, clearing to fine early afternoon. Northwesterlies.
Tomorrow morning we will assess the current conditions and we will update this report by 6am. We are really looking forward to seeing you soon.

Maps

Do You Know The Snow Code?

Limit your speed in busy areas. Match your speed to surrounding skiers and riders and be prepared for others to make sudden changes in direction or speed.

Stay 5m from others. If less than 5m from others you must slow down. The faster you go the more space you must give others.

Give way to those downhill. Look before you leap. Snowboarders: take care turning onto your heel edge.

Only stop where you can be seen from above. Always look uphill before moving again. Only stop on the edge of trails or beside fixed objects.

Backcountry

Please refer to our Ski Touring page and the New Zealand Mountain Safety Council's Backcountry page to read about how to stay safe when touring.

Terrain Closures

Any terrain closures will be indicated on the day on signage around the ski area. Please be respectful of all closures as these are in place for your safety. If you are not sure please ask one of our Ski Patrollers who are stationed around the unload areas of our lifts. Our lifts access certain terrain that suits different ability levels - to be sure you have the right lift pass to access the type of lift and terrain for your skiing/riding ability, please ask our Guest Services staff if you need assistance. When riding a lift always ensure the safety bar is lowered on your chair. If you are unsure about the lift, just ask the nearest Lift Operator to slow it down for you. All lifts operate between 9am-4pm daily, weather & snow conditions permitting.
