Methven Sports & Outdoors: 3 reviews and 3 photos


This is a big sports shop where you can rent all skiing gear you need for having a great time at the Mt. Hutt skifield.

It is located next to the transportation centre on Main Street.

The shop was established in 1978 by Olympic skier Chris Womersley. It includes a workshop and bootfitting sector.

All boards and skis are tuned after each hire and the boots are of high quality. There is an extensive clothing hire available as well as gloves, helmets and goggle hire – all for people over three years old.

Of course, you can also purchase all this and more in the retail area of the shop.
