Mt. Hutt, NZ is having one heck of a season. Multiple storms as of late have left the area buried in snow, which has prompted them to extend their ski season. Instead of closing on the original scheduled date of Sunday, October 8th, they will now close on Sunday, October 15th. This allows New Zealand residents to enjoy the slopes through the end of NZ school holidays.
Mt. Hutt Press Release:
Update from JMac,
It’s official and you heard it here first! We are extending our winter season for an extra week! We’ve got absolutely oodles of snow, so staying open through to the end of the NZ school holidays makes perfect sense. Our scheduled closing date is now 15th October.
We’ve just enjoyed one of the seasons best weekends to date following the 20cm top-up of powdery snow we received on Friday – conditions on trail are primo and off-trail has been sensational. We’re grooming super-wide at the moment – with Broadway now so “broad” it has almost linked in with Exhibition Bowl. Finding your own space on the mountain to up your skills has never been easier, and if you’re keen to progress more quickly I really recommend a lesson with one of our amazing instructors. Additionally, our terrain park set-up is the best it’s been since I can remember – there’s something for everyone (take that from someone who does everything possible to avoid leaving the ground or sliding over rails).
The Mt Hutt team look forward to welcoming you back for more fun in the sun as we track into spring.
See you soon.
