Discover Mt Hutt is a community fundraising event, run in partnership with the Lions Club of Methven.
From 10 am to 4 pm the Summit 6 chairlift will be spinning; set to carry families, walkers and bikers to the very top of Canterbury’s award‑winning mountain. Disembarking at the top, 2086m above sea level, visitors will be greeted with unrivalled 360° views across the Southern Alps and Canterbury Plains.
For the return journey, some may opt for the thrill of biking the majestic scree slopes; others may prefer to meander along, admiring the diverse range of flora and fauna on display in this conservation area. For an even more laidback approach, there is always the option of jumping on the chairlift to get back down to the base.
Opuke Kai will be open for refreshments and in the base area live music is set to entertain the crowds; with volunteers running the café and BBQ areas. The event is weather dependent, with a backup day of Sunday 20th February.
Access Road Opens at 9.30am
Tickets will be available to purchase online in early 2022
