Day 7: Tekapo to Christchurch | Roundhill/Mt Dobson/Mt Hutt

Today we’ll head to either Roundhill, Mt Dobson or Mt Hutt depending on weather conditions.

Roundhill is one of Mackenzie Country’s best kept secrets.With the highest vertical drop in Australasia (at 783 meters), breath-taking views of Aoraki Mt Cook, and boasting one of NZ’s widest runs, the ski field offers an awesome day on the slopes with terrain to suit all capabilities.

Mt Dobson is best known for natural dry powder snow, trails for all abilities, all day sun and wide open uncrowded runs.

Located high in the Southern Alps, Canterbury’s Mt Hutt Ski Area receives some of the lightest and driest powder in Australasia. A big mountain (365 skiable hectares) with great terrain, this ski field is an awesome winter experience for first timers and seasoned powder hounds.

We ski/snowboard until around 3pm before setting off to New Zealand’s largest South Island city, Christchurch.
