Trying to pick the perfect day to Heliski? A very good tip to remember is that when Mt Hutt gets strong winds that can restrict the operation of its lifts it is snowing in the Arrowsmiths! The energy that creates the strong winds and warm temperatures in Christchurch comes from energy released in the form of snow during the winter months and rain at lower elevations on the West Coast. We can get great cold powder snow with no wind effect when Mt Hutt is receiving strong winds! Believe me being 100 km to the West can make a very big difference! If you are checking Mt Hutt for fresh snow so you can heliski then are looking at the wrong website! Just remember when it blows its snows and when it stops blowing make sure you have your booking in place!
