Mount Hutt

I took my first New Zealand ski trip a few weeks ago.   Mount Hutt is the biggest ski place in the general region (big meaning they actually have chairlifts!), just under a two hour trip each way.  It was very nice, and a beautiful drive!

The keas are everywhere!!

A lovely, quaint ski field!

It was an incredibly windy and cold day, making the more exposed runs very icy and top of the mountain almost unbearable, but I’d still call it a worthwhile trip and hope to get back soon!
