Big Plans For New Zealand Ski Area (20-Sep-09)

Porters Ski Area, New Zealand, September 20, 2009 - The new owners of the internationally

The new owners of the internationally little known Porters Ski Area (formerly Porter Heights) near Canterbury in New Zealand has announced plans to expand the ski area and build a full resort base.

The 10 year, $250 million (NZ) plan would see a ‘carbon-neutral’ year-round resort complex capable of accommodating up to 3,000 people at build-out completed at the base of the slopes and the existing 700 hectare ski area expanded in to the adjoining Crystal Valley aided by a new gondola and access run.

The developers hope the expanded Porters would match nearby Mt Hutt, which currently sells five times as many lift tickets, and help build Canterbury in to another international resort town destination for New Zealand along side Christchurch.
