Mt Hutt

*SNOW REPORT - Fri 25 May, 08:04 AM

Mt Hutt

Opening on

5cm (min) - 20cm (max)


20cm on 23 May 2018

Strong winds and snow showers yesterday stripped out the ridges but loaded-up the trails and our snowmaking team are back on-line and will continue to build up our snow base. Some good cold temps are expected into the weekend and more natural snowfalls in the forecast bode well for the start of the 2018 winter season which officially starts at Mt Hutt on 8th June.

Road maintenance is ongoing in the lead up to the winter season with heavy machinery working in a number of locations. Numerous unmarked hazards exist (e.g. grading berms and loose rocks) so please drive with care. The gate at Rakaia Saddle (3km from the base lodge) is unlocked/open Mon to Thu from 6:30am to 5:30pm. Contact our office for access outside of these times.

Mt Hutt is a smokefree ski area - if you need to smoke, please do so in the confines of your own vehicle. Many thanks for your understanding.
