About Ski Time

Ski Time in Methven is a restaurant, bar, lodge and apartment villas all rolled into one. This establishment captures the essence of Methven friendliness, but unlike some accommodation places in Methven, Ski Time also has style and flair. The external décor uses lots of wood and stone and the attractively inviting décor just begs you to come inside for a drink and a hearty meal in the bar or restaurant.

Where is Ski Time?

Ski Time is located in Methven (aka Mt Hutt Village) about 30 minutes drive from the Mt Hutt ski resort. Ski Time is in Racecourse Avenue which is the last street off Mount Hutt Station Rd before the town transforms into paddocks. This means that the gorgeous views of Mt Hutt and the surrounding mountains are uninterrupted (except in the event of inclement weather when Hutt is shrouded in cloud!).

The ski shuttle bus pick up is across the road.


Lodge Accommodation

The Ski Time lodge accommodation is contained within the main building. Rooms are either standard or standard-deluxe. Bedding configuration can be super-king + single or 3 singles. The standard of accommodation is “middle of the road” with prices well matched to the quality of accommodation, and a light continental breakfast is included in the tariff. The lodge has a very sociable communal lounge-room with a fireplace, pool table and other games. Other facilities include wireless internet access, laundry, drying room, and ski and snowboard storage.

Villa Apartment and Studios

The villa apartments at Ski Time are located towards the rear of the property. The exteriors are somewhat plain but the interiors have been decked out with very modern and tasteful décor.

Configurations include 2 bedroom apartments (for up to 4 guests) as well as adjoining studios with kitchenette to provide the flexibility to form a 3 bedroom apartment (for up to 6 guests). The 2-bedroom apartments have two king beds or a super-king bed, an open plan living area and a gorgeous kitchen. In the apartments there are also laundry facilities, a gas fireplace, and a DVD player. Both the apartments and studios have Sky TV, wireless internet access and an ironing board.

Dining and Bar

The restaurant and bar is the centrepiece of Ski Time. Everything about the place is inviting: the tasteful décor comprised of stone and wood; the alluring aromas; the fireplaces adorned with interesting paraphernalia; the comfortable leather couches; and the colourful locals that hang out in the chic bar. The intimate bar area is cosy and facilitates mingling so that you can compare skiing and boarding stories. The stories may become more embellished as après transforms into pre-dinner drinks. There’s the option of perching on bar stools or languishing on the leather couches in front of the fireplace. The restaurant at Ski Time is very popular and many people rave about the dining. “The Chop” is often on the menu and is particularly famous. The menu is a meat lovers’ paradise and the cuts of meat are of high quality. Ski Time restaurant caters well to those with a hearty appetite and the wine list is fabulous. The only limitations are that some of the meals are designed for simple palates and there is very little on offer for non-carnivores.

Why Stay at Ski Time?

Ski Time provides a range of accommodation options for sole travellers, couples or groups. You can either choose the comfort of the lodge or the stylish apartment villas. The Ski Time bar and restaurant is a very popular Methven hang-out. Stay at Ski Time and you’ve got all this at your doorstep.

A Great Place for all Group Sizes & a Top Restaurant

The Powderhounds stayed in one of the studios, so we can personally recommend this form of accommodation.

The first thing that stuck us about the studio was the fabulously huge bed that was blissfully comfortable. The bathroom was large and the shower was big enough to dance in (if you so desire!).

Even though the term “studio” is used these are more aptly described as a hotel room because there wasn’t really a kitchenette but just a bar fridge, kettle, toaster and a little bit of crockery which is what you’d expect of a hotel room. Nevertheless, with breakfast included and some great Methven dining options, we didn’t really need the kitchen amenities so all in all it was a great accommodation option. See our video here
