Mt Hutt mis­take

The Press - - News -

Up to 300 ve­hi­cles full of frus­trated skiers were forced to wait while head­ing to­wards prime con­di­tions at Mt Hutt due to a com­mu­ni­ca­tion er­ror, with some turn­ing around and head­ing home. Man­ager James McKen­zie said a ‘‘break­down in com­mu­ni­ca­tion’’ caused the is­sue yes­ter­day, but they ‘‘got on top of it pretty quickly’’. The de­lay hap­pened when a car lost its chains be­tween the up­per and lower car park, forc­ing cars to be di­verted to the lower car park. McKen­zie said some­one had then ‘‘made an as­sump­tion we were al­ready full at our top car park when we weren’t’’, lead­ing to a mes­sage be­ing sent out say­ing the moun­tain was at ca­pac­ity on Mt Hutt’s Face­book page and web­site. ‘‘We’ve ob­vi­ously apol­o­gised on our Face­book page for the con­fu­sion, and it’s not some­thing we want to see hap­pen again,’’ he said.
