Kids 4 FreeThere is an amazing offer happening this winter in the stunning Methven and Mt Hutt region of New Zealand called Kids 4 Free. Methven & Mt Hutt is 1 hour’s drive from Christchurch International Airport.

The Kids 4 Free initiative is in its 5th season and many of the Methven businesses take part in the Kids 4 Free campaign. The properties involved in the deal can be easily identified with the Kids 4 Free logo on their windows.

So what is Kids 4 Free all about and who is it for? 

The Kids 4 Free deal is the initiative by the winter market group, which comprises of representatives from the Methven business community, Mt Hutt Ski Area, Experience Mid Canterbury Tourism, Christchurch International Airport Limited, and Christchurch & Canterbury Tourism.

Kids 4 Free 1The Kids 4 free campaign has been very successful, over the years and it has helped promote Methven and Mt Hutt to families near and far. Children aged 10 years and under can obtain not only free lift passes at Mt Hutt, but free meals and accommodation at selected properties in Methven and surrounding areas. We also offer a free Ski bus up the mountain with this campaign.

The Mt Hutt free lift pass is available to all children 10 years and under regardless of how many adults are with them, other deals vary but mostly comprise of one full paying adult, one child 10 years and under for free. This could be a free seat on the Ski Bus or a free meal from the children’s meal in one of the restaurants. For more details and conditions visit the web page  The kids 4 free deals are open to everyone with children 10 years and under whether you live down the road or are visiting from further afield.

Families can now afford to stay that bit longer than they would normally and take time to make the most of the fantastic snow at Mt Hutt this season.

With the Kids 4 Free savings in their back pockets families can extend the budget to experience the surrounds with a touch of adventure; the odd walk or bike ride, jet boating up the Rakaia river, discovering the NZ Alpine and Agricultural Encounter, horse riding or even Hot Air Ballooning.

Kids 4 Free 2The town and nearby surrounds have many opportunities for families needing a break from the normal daily routines.  A unique family favourite is discovering the Staveley outdoor ice skating and curling rinks set in native bush just 20 minutes from Methven. For information about whether the skating rink is open or not check out their facebook page –
