Methven attracts visitors every year for skiing and other winter sports at nearby Mt. Hutt and the surrounding Southern Alps.

Methven is a small town in the Canterbury region of the South Island of New Zealand. It is located near the western edge of the Canterbury Plains. It is a rural service town throughout the year, but undergoes a stark transformation in winter. Mount Hutt skifield is around half an hour away from Methven, the closest town.
