Welcome to Mt CheesemanThe friendly ski area that promotes fun

Cheeseman is a friendly ski area that promotes a fun, family environment in an alpine setting and is open to the public.

We are the closest club ski area to Christchurch, being just 90 minutes drive or approximately 99km.

The mountain has a sunny aspect with groomed runs and off-piste terrain that caters for all abilities. Our two T-bar lifts provide access to the whole mountain with a learners’ rope tow in our dedicated learners’ area.
