Day 2: Methven to Mount Cook | Mount Hutt
Today you rest your heli legs and venture up Mt Hutt.
Located in the Southern Alps, Canterbury’s Mt Hutt Ski Area receives some of the lightest and driest powder in Australasia. Mt Hutt caters for everyone, with great terrain covering 365 skiable hectares. Access to terrain is quick on the 6 seater chairlift, with some light traversing to get to the black diamond runs.
For those seeking adrenalin inducing goodness, Towers, South Face, Montesumas will deliver. With views reaching out across the quilted landscape to the ocean, or back out across the Southern Alps, photo backdrops are in abundance. If the heli bug has taken a bite out of you, there’s the heli-upgrade option for you. This will be with the same company we heli-skiied with yesterday and can be booked through your Tour Guide the night before or this morning (weather and availability dependent). In the evening we drive to Aoraki Mt Cook Village so we can rise early for Day 3. Day 2 will be the heli day if bad weather Day 1.
