    Hopes a new hut will revive an old Canterbury ski field

    Hopes a new hut will revive an old Canterbury ski field


    The Local Democracy Reporting Service reports Alpine Huts Limited is building an eight-bunk hut on Mt Potts in a bid to boost local ski tourism.

    Director Tom Evatt hopes to have it ready for public use this winter.

    The site is listed as a ski area in DOC's conservation management strategy and was used by a heli-skiing company until 2011.

    Evatt says this is an opportunity to re-invent Mt Potts as a backcountry destination for ski touring and split boarding with minimal investment and infrastructure.
