Porter Heights Reviews

Porters on the up


Pros: Easy access from Christchurch, great long advanced runs

Cons: Limited skiing for intermediates, sunny aspect makes it hard for snow to collect

Porters is a fun ski area for anyone. They have big plans to expand terrain and lift infrastructure. Its low elevation and sunny aspect means snow is sometimes limited though. If you don't mind riding T-bars then you can get in some long laps and test yourself on the thigh burner that is Big Mama. Overall worth a visit.
