Mt Hutt Ski Area Bosts Incredible Season! (16-Oct-08)

Mt Hutt, NZ, October 16 2008 - Living up to its reputation for having the longest ski season in the Southern Hemisphere

Living up to its reputation for having the longest ski season in the Southern Hemisphere, Mt. Hutt out of Christchurch in New Zealand has more snow on the forecast promising an amazing end to the season.

The ski season at the high country resort officially closes this Sunday (19 October) but that’s only the official closing according to Mt Hutt Ski Area Manager, Dave Wilson who promises to reopen (weather permitting) on NZ Labour Weekend 24-27 October.

“It’s been one of the best seasons in decades,” he said. “We’ve had natural snowfalls of nearly 6m throughout the season building up to the magic 3m base in September – the largest base in 10 years.

“And the season isn’t over yet! Snow is forecast for the weekend so we hope to get in a few more magic powder days before the end.”

Weather permitting base facilities to re-open on Labour Weekend include the Sky High Café, Rental and Repair, and the Snow Shop.
