    I booked snowman shuttle on 17th July from. Christchurch to Mt Hutt. I requested to be pick up from my hotel in Christchurch at 6:50. By 6:45 the driver is already at my door!!!!! He is so friendly and nice to all of us. It's such a good value and easy to book with these guys !!. Hopefully I will come back to Christchurch again next year for snowboarding.

    First timers
    It was a nice experience for us since it was our first time going there, the driver was very accomodating and telling as about places in New Zealand. We were just a bit sad coz we didnt stay long enough due to strong winds, the mountains need to close early. But overall it was still a lovely and memorable experienced. Will recommend the service of snowman shuttle to family and friends.

    Best way to get from ChCh to Mt Hutt
    I have usually stayed in Methven and taken the shuttle to the hill when I wanted to ski Mt Hutt. But there is not much to do in Methven aside from skiing and the accomodation costs have increased quite a bit. So this time I stayed in ChCh and took the shuttle up and back. The cost was very reasonable and the driver was very nice and professional.I was picked up at my central city hotel at around 7:00 and dropped back at around 6:00. It’s a long day! The skis were placed in a ski box standing upright which is so much better than the storage underneath a bus that doesn’t protect your gear. I don’t ski the whole day anymore but thoroughly enjoyed my extra time on the mountain. I would do this again without hesitation.

    A enjoyable and safe trip to mt hutt
    Booked twice, nice driver, they are thoughtful. Of course they are good driver when heading up to the top of mt hutt, the lane is a little bit of scary. Music on the bus is great, recommend for ski lover.

    Great value for money and great service!
    I have used Snowman Shuttles on a number of occasions to go skiing and I have had great experiences each time. They are punctual and efficient. The driver was kind, helpful and gave very clear instructions so that we all knew exactly what to expect at every stage of the trip. Thanks Team Snowman!

    Snow day out
    We would recommend Snowman Shuttles for those who can't or don't want to drive to Mt Hutt. Our pick up and drop off point at the bus terminus was good. The trip was good value. Our driver was friendly, punctual and gave us all the necessary information. She was a good driver and drove to the conditions so we felt safe. It was relaxing to be able to sit back and admire the scenery on the way. The only minor negative is that there is not much space between the seats so a little cramped.

Easy way to get to the snow and back. The driver was professional and had plenty of experience on the mountain. I wouldn’t do it any other way as they make it extremely easy to get the most out of the day.

Great, so easy for us as inexperienced mountain goers to get to the ski fields. Comfy ride in both directions. Will go again and won’t even bother looking at alternatives for transport.

I have been using Snowman Shuttles to get my teenagers from Christchurch to Mt Hutt for the past few years. The crew are reliable, trustworthy and great role models for my kids. I would recommend Snowman Shuttles to anyone wanting the convenience and safety to get up to Mt Hutt.
Many thanks
