Mt Lyford Facilities & Services

Mt Lyford Facilities & Services

The facilities on-mountain at Mt Lyford are reasonably basic. The day lodge building houses a cafe, toilets, equipment rental “shop”, ticket office and ski school.

Eating On Mountain The Chamois café in the day lodge will fill the void whilst up on the hill. Toasted sandwiches, nachos, and lasagne plus pies accounts for the majority of the hot food. Chocky bars, crisps and other odds and sods round out the fare. All are reasonably priced and satisfy one’s hunger.

Facilities for Children There’s nothing in the way of child care or babysitting at Mt Lyford. If you bring the kids, you look after them. A snow tube can be hired for NZ$10/hour. That’ll keep the kiddies (and oldies) amused.

Ski School Professional ski and board instruction plus a variety of lessons and packages are available.

Ski and Snowboard Rental Mt Lyford has a full range of rental skis, boards and some clothing available.

Banking and Internet Facilities Bring cash to the hill as the nearest ATMs are located on the main street of the town of Kaikoura…….. a hour drive north! Nearest internet is in the Mt Lyford Lodge at the base of the hill.
