Tons of people on the hill but next to no queue for tickets. No queue for pies, and short wait for espresso. That's an impressive operation - thanks for making our day about skiing, and not about queues!

We had the best time at Mt Hutt. Some great runs for beginners intermediates and advanced. Easy to progress through the ranks with these slopes and every well sign posted. It does close occasionally but that's the nature of skiing and of course the road...More

Mt Hutt is awesome and the staff do the absolute best they can. It seems the people (itchy skiiers and boarders) will always have something to complain about with Mt Hutt which is just unfair. They work so hard to make sure the mountain is...More

Hi John, yes there is a tobogganing area next to the Magic Carpet. It is great fun! You can bring your own gear or purchase toboggans in the SnoSnop. Ellen
