About Cheeseman

  Distance from Christchurch Airport: 104 km, approximately 1.5 hours

Mt Cheeseman has a distinctive fun, family friendly atmosphere. You can drive directly to the ski area where you will find diverse terrain for all abilities and loads of great facilities.

There’s a sunny day lodge with a large wrap around deck, licensed Cockayne Café and gear hire.

The learner tow is right outside the day lodge and there are two T-bars to take you to the top.

The Main T-bar accesses the Main Basin with extensive grooming, the Ridge T-bar offers challenging off-piste skiing with spectacular views.

Snowline Lodge has ski-in, ski-out accommodation and at the base of the mountain is Forest Lodge with an on-site outdoor ice rink.
