Day 1: Christchurch to Springfield | Porters
We depart Christchurch at 6am and pick up our hire gear (for those that need it) en-route to Porters, best known for its relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
Porter’s lifts run up two distinct valleys: Big Mama (which towers above the right of the base area) and Bluff Face (which towers above the left).
At 620m, Big Mama boasts one of the largest vertical drops in one lift-accessed run in New Zealand. Easy backcountry riding is available from the top of the T3T-Bar.
For the next two nights we stay at Springfield Lodge, a snow sports enthusiast’s haven, complete with unrivalled views and an outdoor spa pool to enjoy after a big day on the slopes.
