    Ride Snow Shuttles and: The Ski Bus

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is transportation from Methven to the Mt. Hutt skifield in small 4x4 vans. I think it is the perfect way to get up to the skifield safely if you either have no 4x4 vehicle or not used to driving on tricky winding roads in wintery conditions.

    Daily departure at 8.10 am, return at 4pm, cost NZ$ 25.
    Return trip at 12noon $ 30.
    (Fares as winter 2010; fare increase expected for winter 2011.)

    They also arrange ski and gear rentals for you upon request.

    Another service is The Ski Bus. Daily departures are at the info centre in Main Street, departure times 7.45am and 9.45am.

    Reservations on mobile phone number (027) 302 80 70.

    As Christchurch's main i-site on Cathedral Square has been off limit since the 22 February earthquake, you better call in at the i-site at the airport and consult this website:

    They have scheduled departures. The winter timetable starts with the opening of the Mt. Hutt skifield, normally on the first weekend in June, and goes until mid October.
