New Ski Technology, NZ's Best Grooming Fleet Offered At Mt Hutt For 2009 (05-Mar-09)

Mt Hutt, NZ, March 5, 2009 - While most of us are still thinking about the sun and surf

While most of us are still thinking about the sun and surf, the crew at Mt Hutt are already preparing for the 2009 snow season with some big capital improvements for skiers and riders.

Three new state-of-the-art snow groomers and new snowmaking compressors will combine to help produce more snow and improved trails, according to ski area manager Dave Wilson.

“The new groomers mean we will have New Zealand’s most modern and extensive grooming fleet. This investment gives us the capability to significantly improve skiing and riding conditions for visitors to Mt Hutt.

“The new machines are bigger and better making it easier for us to groom trails across a wide range of terrain. The machines are especially designed for park development too which means we can also improve the way we build and maintain our extensive terrain park system.”

The high country resort has also invested in a cutting edge ski rental system designed by Head, which will deliver better skis faster for those renting equipment.

“The new system will improve the flow through our rental services allowing for a quick and personalized set up – customers won’t even have to take their boots off to get their skis fitted. This means less time getting fitted and more time on the slopes for skiers, with the high quality skis making learning and improvement easier.”

Mr Wilson said there were also improvements for families with increased facilities and programmes for children aged from 2 to 17 years.

“It’s designed to create more fun for kids and make it easy for families – it’s what it’s all about at Mt Hutt,” said Mr Wilson.
