Mount Hutt Access Road

Mount Hutt Skifield Access Road is a steep, winding, dirt road with no guardrail, located to the west of the Canterbury Plains in the South Island of New Zealand. It’s one of the highest roads in the country.

This single-lane dirt road has a length of 13km. It’s very narrow and very scenic, carved into the side of the range. The road was built in 1970 and climbs up an altitude of 1.597m (5,239ft). From the main road, the road climbs up to the resort on an unsealed track that can be ice affected or muddy and slippery. It is definitely necessary to carry chains.
This road is usually open all year, but it can be closed anytime when the access is not cleared of snow. Its steep thirteen kilometre access road is prone to closure in poor weather.
