Went there in August, you can rent all the equipment from them. Great views, they also have jumps and places to practise your skills. Good snow.

Best organisation and customer service in New Zealand. Good snow and a long ski season. Tricky access road, depending on conditions.

Nice lodge and ski field. Can be very busy so learners going on the larger slops can get intimidated.

Brilliant! For a family of 6, including 4 children who had never skied before Mount Hutt was perfect. Weather variable, from sunshine to snow, wind and heavy cloud. With three days only to ski, we opted for a private 1 hour lesson each morning. The instructors were very experienced, positive and encouraging. By day 3, all 4 children (ages 14 down to 6 years) were ski-ing on easy intermediate runs and well and truly hooked!! Lovely wide,varied long runs. We all want to go back.

We had an AWESOME 2 days skiing and our package (from Alpine Expeditions) was great value. Beautiful powder on the first day, and a gorgeous mountain. Great weather too - hurrah! Not too busy either. HOWEVER there was only one beginner run AND the signage was pretty poor so we got stuck on an icy mountainside sliding down on our butts. But apart from that it was ace :-D

Unfortunately, I am used to northern hemishpere ski resort development & thus feel there is a huge gap to be filled.
