Whatever your ability, you’ll feel right at home at Porters. We’ve got gentle runs and easy lifts for beginners and kids, long cruising runs for the intermediates and super challenging terrain for advanced skiers and riders. The Porters Community Park offers a challenge for the more adventurous, and a great platform to progress your freestyle skills.Now you’ve discovered us, you might as well come and say hello! And it really is so easy. We’re only 89km from Christchurch – just a bit over an hour in the car, out along the Great Alpine Highway.

Simply take Highway 73 heading west from Christchurch, and it’s an easy, predominantly straight drive to Porters. You’ll pass through the small country townships of Darfield, Sheffield and Springfield, which is our base village and is the last stop to get petrol and food before you head up.

From Springfield, you head through the Porters Pass, past Lake Lyndon, and we are well sign-posted on the left side of the road. We also run a free mountain road shuttle on demand, see ‘Getting to Porters’.
