Snow much closer is the first big reason to discover this classic Kiwi big mountain experience - Methven Mt Hutt Village is only just over an hour's drive from Christchurch Airport, so you can even nip over for a long weekend if you want. That's also part of the second big reason to come here - it's sensational value, with plenty of cheap airfares to Christchurch and our range of affordable accommodation making it an obvious choice for anyone on a tight budget. Methven itself is a unique blend of working Kiwi country town meets international ski resort that provides a laid back, friendly and unpretentious snow holiday destination. The choice of a night out usually comes down to either the Brown or the Blue pub with many of the accommodation providers also having restaurants and smaller bars. It is also ideal for families and those who just want to get on with the job of ripping up one of NZ's mightiest mountains. Our tip is to remember how good it gets in September, the 'second season' here as the altitude and aspect keep the snow in top condition until much later than at home.
