A REAL kiwi resort experience with amazing terrain for everyone.

Here is your chance to spend an extended period shredding the slopes in the land of the long white cloud! Mt Hutt is one of New Zealand’s leading resorts and has one of the largest vertical drops in the Southern Hemisphere. It is known for its epic, expansive terrain. Being 100% above the tree line creates a stunning opportunity to ride in open bowls, double black diamond chutes and wide open groomed runs!


The Mt Hutt Internship will teach you everything you need to succeed, as well as giving you that precious foot in the door as a qualified level 1 ski / snowboard Instructor. You'll join the Mt Hutt Snowsports team and quickly become a valuable team member with your new-found expertise.


The resort's laid back, Kiwi atmosphere is evident everywhere, particularly in the parking lot where locals regularly set up BBQ’s to cook their lunch! You will be trained by some of the worlds best, with many top trainers migrating to Mt Hutt during the winter months. And don’t forget the views! From the top of Mt Hutt these are breathtaking. Nothing beats looking straight down the Southern Alps towards Lord of the Rings country!
