Day Tripping : Mount Hutt
The boys had been waiting to go back to Mount Hutt ever since the Winter. One thing or the other came in the way and it never happened.
Finally, the very last day of the season arrived.The weather was just magical and it was the weekend.When everything aligned so perfectly , the much longed for trip had to happen!
Mount Hutt is the largest ski area in the South Island, about an hour 's drive from Christchurch.
look... a Kea...The Kea is the world's only Alphine Parrot
Snow jackets , pants and boots plus the ski/ snowboarding gear are all available for hire
My adventure loving boys wanted to try some of the activities there.
Lil B wanted to learn to ski
Big B wanted to learn to snowboard
With the help of their very patient and enthusiastic teachers, they went up a couple of levels from where they started.
We had lunch at the nice cafe there .The view from the deck and inside the cafe of the ski field is just fantastic.
Being the last day of the season, there was a competition .We were awestruck by the control and skill displayed by some of the participants.
