The Mountain


The ski area

Hanmer Springs Ski Area offers you New Zealand club field skiing at its best!
Family friendly (everybody friendly!), relaxed, affordable and a focus on the people and place as opposed to how awesome you are on the snow.

We have a cosy, heated Day Lodge complete with gas stoves and ovens, toasted sandwich machines, tea and coffee for your convenience when you want a relaxing break. 
Large windows toward the slopes make for great viewing for spectators as well as our fantastic mezzanine level with couches and a warm sunny area for children and families to relax.
Our deck is perfect for warm spring days with a bbq or an apres ski drink under the stars.

Ski/Snowboard hire as well as outerwear is available directly from our partners Hanmer Adventure Centre in the village. Nutcrackers and toboggans are available on the mountain. We have a great experienced team of Ski and Snowboard Instructors on hand to help you get the most out of your time at our field, and a qualified ski patroller is always on duty. 

If you decide to stay the night with us (there's comfortable accommodation for a maximum of 64 people) you can choose from either family rooms or bunk type accommodation in the Robinson Lodge.
All accommodation is self catering and exceptionally good value.
There's nothing quite like waking up in the midst of the mountains! An amazing experience for families, groups or a couples getaway.

amuri ski club

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 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 passesaccommodation, 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.
