Location Information

We are in Methven Mt Hut Village close to the Mt Hutt Ski Field and are an easy drive to Porters Pass and the Canterbury "Clubfields" which are ski areas operated by small ski clubs for their members however anyone is welcome (Mt Olympus, Broken River and Craidieburn).
Besides skiing, there are plenty of other activities available including hot air balloon rides, tandem sky diving, golf, absailing, horse riding, cycling, fishing and many mountain & bush walks.
Within easy 5mins walking distance of Big Tree Lodge are several bars and coffee shops. The Paradiso Art House Movie Theatre puts on extra shows when needed. The i-site visitor centre is in the main street and has 3 ski and snowboard shops close by. This boutique village is surprisingly well equipped with 2 supermarkets, galleries, an indoor skate park, book shop, laundromat and a gymnasium. Methven has many eateries, most of which are 5 minutes from our backpacker lodge. We think Dom's is terrific (the chicken/cranberry pizza is to die for) and the pubs & restaurants are pretty good too!
