Take a ski weekend in Canterbury

Canterbury has the most ski areas in the entire Southern Hemisphere. With plenty of après ski options in Canterbury, from soaking in New Zealand’s highest hot tub to tucking into a classic Kiwi burger at a sub-alpine lodge, Canterbury has you covered this winter.

Ryan and his mate Harry hit the road for local club field, Mt Olympus. This field is popular with backcountry adventurers who love to ski or board off-piste in awesome terrain, all set within a very friendly club environment. They spent their weekend skiing, making new friends and enjoying the epic facilities.
