About Mt Olympus

  Distance from Christchurch Airport: 125km, approximately 2.5 hours

Mt Olympus delivers an unforgettable experience. 

Known as the soul of New Zealand freeride skiing, the terrain is suited to intermediate to advanced skiers with mellow bowls and big mountain lines, entirely groomer free.

There’s a learner’s area but it requires an adventurous beginner to conquer the access rope tow.

The Top Hut offers ski-in, ski-out accommodation and is a popular place to stay with a lively and fun atmosphere. It’s fully catered and home of the famous Far Canal Bar and Mt O hot-tub.

Mt Olympus Ski Weeks are legendary and themed for all ages and stages.


Stay on the Mountain

Enjoy the alpine environment and ski-in ski-out options at Top Hut. Fully catered for breakfast, lunch and dinner with a fully catered bar.

Pitch in and help the staff with chores while soaking up the atmosphere that’s world famous in the upper reaches of the Ryton Valley.

Sit back by the log fire or take a soak in the hot tub. 

The Bottom Hut located at the base of the My Olympus valley offers rustic, affordable, self-catered accommodation with bunk beds.
