Mt Cheeseman Ski Resort
Offering great value for money, Mt Cheeseman is 90 minutes’ drive from Christchurch on State Highway 73. It's a safe, well-maintained access road allowing you to drive right to the T Bar lifts.
The mountain has a sunny aspect with groomed runs and off-piste terrain that caters for all abilities. There are two T-bar lifts with access to the whole mountain along with a learners’ rope tow in a dedicated learners’ area. Enjoy uncrowded groomed terrain and challenging off-piste with spectacular views.
Mount Cheeseman provides ski and board lessons, rental facilities and a licensed café.
The Mt Cheeseman access road is located about 1.5 km past Castle Hill village when travelling from Christchurch. The entrance gate is clearly marked and signposted prior to the turnoff. The unsealed access road is 12km in length. You can drive right to the door to unload while the main carpark is a few hundred metres below the unloading area. Always carry snowchains.
