Mt Hutt Ski Area Open

      We have archived our news items back till 2002. Our current newsleter is here.

The ski area has enjoyed excellent snowmaking conditions over the last few days with freezing temperatures and little wind allowing more than 90 hours continuous
snowmaking.

Since last Thursday, more than 21,000,000 litres of water have pumped through the snowmaking systems creating a base of approximately 20-25cm across the beginners area, Highway 72 and Broadway trails.

Ski Area Manager Dave Wilson says the transformation from last week to this week was amazing.

“Temperatures have been incredibly cold, down to -9 degrees. It’s been the best snowmaking period I have ever seen at Mt Hutt and our snowmakers have taken full advantage of the conditions to get the ski area to opening point. A new record was set with 45 guns making snow at the same time.”

Lifts operating on opening day will be the Quad Chair and the Magic Carpet offering access to beginner, novice and intermediate terrain.

“We’ll also have 2-3 terrain park features available for people to start hitting rails and boxes from day one.”

More snow will be required before the Summit Six chair and more advanced terrain can be opened.

Mr Wilson looks forward to a social day out on Wednesday where people can welcome the season with a glass of bubbles courtesy of Lindauer, vie for the infamous first-on-the-Quad t-shirt honours and enjoy some fun turns.

Developments at Mt Hutt this year include improved access trails, a new trail through The Wolds, an extension to the Halfpipe, a second winch groomer, and snowmaking in the terrain park.

“The weather has certainly changed over the last 2 weeks and we are starting to see more normal weather patterns for this time of the year,” said Mr Wilson.
