Resort Overview


Area Profile

Mt. Cheeseman

Mount Cheeseman is the second closest ski area to Christchurch. It is made up of two halves, the groomed piste and the ungroomed that has Mt Cockayne at the top and Powder Valley. The ski field has open rolling terrain. It has great beginner and intermediate slopes, making it a perfect location for learners and families. Two T Bars give easy access to well groomed gentle terrain and the Learners Tow is located right beside the main lodge.

You can choose to stay up on the mountain in Snowline Lodge or alternatively in the Forest Lodge, which is nestled in the Beech Forest approx 5 minutes away by car.

The season runs from early July to early October.
