about baner


The Amuri Ski Club was founded in 1957 by a group of farmers keen on having somewhere in North Canterbury to ski.  The Club runs the Hanmer Springs Ski Area (formerly the Amuri Ski Field) and is affiliated to the Canterbury Snowsports Association.

Although anyone can ski or board at Hanmer Springs Ski Area there are many great benefits of becoming a member of the Amuri Ski Club.  These include greatly discounted rates for lift passes, accommodation, participating in the upkeep management and development of our ski club and social interaction with like minded people.
When mother nature plays the game we come together for fun events like the Club Champs family friendly day of racing and R18 dress up event; the Bacardi Cup. 
We hope to reinvigorate the calendar with more great club based events and look forward to inviting any help and ideas from our members. 

Looking forward, the club will be driving a number of new initiatives for summer access and activities. We are very excited about these prospects and hope to share these with more like-minded members interested in being involved. Members enjoy the first word on all things snow and beyond by the inclusion in our newsletter database. 

In 2017 we have introduced greatly reduced Membership rates to encourage local families and mountain lovers to come enjoy the snow. This is the cheapest way to support the onoing life of the ski area while getting your whole crew sliding AND staying on the snow!

Household / Family Was: $290 
Now: $100
Senior Membership  Was: $142
Now: $50
Junior / Student / Non-Skiing Membership (ID required) Was: $64
Now: $30
