    I'm heading to NZ soon and the plan was to ski Mt Hutt and the club fields while staying in Methven, though the conditions at present might not allow that.
    Because of this, I'm searching for alternative things to do, and it got me wondering, is there any cross-country skiing near Methven?
    I'm aware of Snow Farm down in Cardrona but that's way too far away for a day trip. All searches so far have turned up nothing...

    no xc as such,
    its all ski touring, Two Thumb out of Tekapo ( guides there) / or Mt Olympus , would be close general options; it all changes if there a decent low level sno fall of course ~
