Mt. Hutt Keeps Skiing Through Warm Weather

Methven, New Zealand - With warm, wet weather one day and a freeze the next, only one New Zealand ski area is surviving the early June weather and continuing operations: Mt. Hutt.

The Canterbury ski area was the only one to offer skiing and riding on Wednesday.

Queenstown's Coronet Peak has been closed since last Friday and won't reopen until at least Monday. The Remarkables and Snow Park NZ have each postponed their openings due to the weather conditions.

“We’ve enjoyed a great week of sunny skiing and riding on a 35cm snow base. There are four beginner to intermediate jibs set up in the new High Country Terrain Park and the national ski team is training," Mt. Hutt's ski area manager, David Wilson, said on Friday. "It may be a bit gloomy elsewhere in terms of snow conditions, but Mt. Hutt is shining right now and the atmosphere is great.”

Mt. Hutt has fought valiantly to maintain operations since opening base-to-summit on June 15th. The New Zealand weather forecast, however, is finally predicted to take a turn for the better within a few days.

“We’re expecting a bit of a warm front before the weather really chills down to deliver storms over the next four or five days, so look out for a powder day within the next week,” Wilson said.

Ski areas in New Zealand are scrambling to ensure adequate operation in time for the country's school holidays that begin June 27th.

Great Early Season Skiing and Riding Conditions At Mt Hutt

Heavy pre-season snowfalls and reasonable snow making conditions has Mt Hutt in great shape for early season skiing and riding according to ski area manager Dave Wilson.

“We’ve enjoyed a great week of sunny skiing and riding on a 35cm snow base. There are four beginner to intermediate jibs set up in the new High Country Terrain Park and the national ski team is training. It may be a bit gloomy elsewhere in terms of snow conditions, but Mt Hutt is shining right now and the atmosphere is great.”

And more snow is expected over the next few days.

“We’re expecting a bit of a warm front before the weather really chills down to deliver storms over the next four or five days, so look out for a powder day within the next week,” he said.

Mr Wilson was looking forward to welcoming families to the High Country Ski Area during the school holidays (from June 27).

“We have several programmes available for kids at all levels from age 6 – 16, excellent learning facilities and a fully licensed Skiwiland crèche for the wee brothers and sisters.”

Mt Hutt opened last Sunday, June 15 with good skiing and riding from Summit to the base area.
