Sorry Closed today due to snow and low visibility we have received 20 cm overnight and it's still snowing. There is going to be some awesome riding conditions this week coming up. Welcome to Mt Lyford North Canterbury's Premier Snow Resort. We are close to Hanmer Springs and Kaikoura both great places to stay and not far from Christchurch. Alternatively come stay in New Zealand's only Alpine Log Village or The Mt Lyford Lodge. We have great snow and offer all services on the mountain.
