Mt Hutt was one of the first mountains I ever attempted to ski, and the after many years of disliking skiing I took to snowboarding, which was alot of fun, and what a great moutain to start on.

This is a great mountain for everyone one, beginners to advanced, kids to parents to grandparents. With rental onsite, along with lessons available to make you a pro in no time.
