Mount Hutt is not only arguably New Zealand's finest ski area, it is a winter playground that saved the small mid-Canterbury town of Methven from slow economic death. The story of the skifield's development is a fascinating saga of latter-day pioneering by a band of rugged individualists who overcame almost insurmountable odds to establish this superb winter sports venue. White Gold chronicles Mount Hutt's development and covers all its subsequent trials and tribulations to the present day. The book is extensively illustrated with portraits of personalities and events, many from private collections and previously unpublished, and spectacular skiing and snowboarding photographs. This book will appeal not just to the skiing or alpine enthusiast, but to anyone who enjoys a tale of triumph, tragedy, intrigue, drama and humour.
