School holidays are in full swing at Canterbury’s Mt Hutt ski area with bluebird days and plenty of fun on the snow.

An exciting addition to the mountain is the ‘Sky High’ terrain park for freestyle skiers and boarders.

The new park features six different pipe rails for intermediate and advanced riders to practice or showcase their best tricks including waterfall, straight and flat-down rails.

Ski area manager James McKenzie said the park has been “extremely popular” with school holiday visitors.

“It’s been really well used with up to 400 through in an hour and we’ve been getting great feedback,” he said.

“The weather so far these holidays has been stunning with bluebird days, so the views from the ‘Sky High’ park have definitely lived up to its name.

“We were also thrilled to get our new-look Triple Chair up and running yesterday (Tuesday July 8) which opens up more terrain for advanced skiers and snowboarders.

”There’s plenty of on-snow fun for the kiddies so it’s a fantastic start to the New Zealand school holidays.”

School holiday entertainment at Mt Hutt includes a bouncy castle, face painting, clowns, lolly scrambles and live music.

With the Methven10-and-under Kids4Free programme now in its third year, families from New Zealand and Australia have flocked to Mt Hutt to take full advantage of some amazing winter offers which include day lift passes, accommodation, transport, restaurants and activities.
