Mt Hutt skifield postpones opening

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 8/06/2016

Canterbury skifield Mt Hutt has postponed its opening day for this year's ski season.

It was due to open on Friday, but high winds are expected so chairlifts may not be able to run, manager James McKenzie says.

"We're disappointed for our guests that the forecast is such that we can't open as planned when we're ready to go and everyone's so excited about opening day."

However snow conditions are good, and the skifield is hopeful of being able to open on Saturday instead, he says.
