      Firstly thanks for all the helpful info. Major change of plans decided to fly from Auckland to Christchurch rather than take the ferry

      Is it possible in a day to drive from Christchurch via Arthurs Pass to Greymouth - a friend who is married to a Kiwi laughed at the idea yet Google maps makes it 151 miles which would make it doable even on mountain roads given that we started early. Likewise I've been warned that the roads around Fox & Franz Joseph Glaciers are liable to close if there is heavy rain. In blunt terms is this scaremongering - equally a hol is for relaxing so we don't want stress

      All info much appreciated and I'm sorry for bothering VTs but I know the advice given is always top notch

      Many thanks

      Mt Hutt - how to go about organising skiing holiday

      by wombles Online Now Mar 1, 2012 at 11:32 PM

      Hi,
      My husband and I are planning on staying in Methven and going skiing at Mt Hutt for three days in in July. Having never been skiing before I don't really know the best way to go about organising everything. Accommodation is simple enough but what about everything else? Clothing/ski hire, lift passes, Methven/Mt Hutt transport, lessons..... Do I need to(or should I) prebook these? Which website? And then how do the logistics work once there? Is hire equipment/clothing kept for the three days or is it rehired each day? Told you I had no idea! Any help greatly appreciated. (-:
