Mt Hutt

show full reporthide full reportUpdated: 9:05pm Tuesday 1 May 2018 - We are busy getting ready for the 2018 winter season with big upgrades... to our snowmaking and slope management systems well underway. Our cafe spaces are getting a major overhaul and we're replacing parts of the Summit 6 safety system to help speed de-icing. We're working on a heap of other improvements so we think 2018 is shaping up to be another awesome season. See you soon! Visit www.metservice.co.nz for the latest Canterbury High Country forecast
