Hanmer Springs Facilities & Services

The day lodge at the Hanmer Spring Ski Area is the hub of off-slope activities during the day. It has a communal kitchen and a mezzanine level with couches for chilling out and enjoying the views. The deck is particularly good during spring, especially for BBQ action.

Eating On Mountain

The main day lodge at Hanmer Springs ski field has a small cafe that serves the very basics. The fare is pretty much a few meat pies (delicious by the way – Kiwis do have great meat pies!), 2 minute noodles, cans of drink, chocolate bars, potato crisps etc. Self-serve coffee and tea are available for a small fee. The hot water is in a big dixie on the combustion stove. A ladle provides the means to access the boiling water. There are definitely no coffee baristas here!

All other food is BYO, but you can use the kitchen. There are toasted sandwich makers so bring the makings for toasted sangas and Bob’s your uncle. Who is Bob any way?

Facilities for Children

Not a lot on offer at Hanmer Springs ski area. If you bring them, you look after them.
