HISTORY OF BROKEN RIVER SKI CLUB
Post-Word War II New Zealand in the late 1940's-early 50's was an era of tough times and little money. If you wanted to achieve something you had to get out there and do it yourself – and this is exactly what founding Broken River Ski Club members did. They wanted to ski, but existing ski fields didn’t suit so they decided to create their own ski field. They were young - between 20 and 28 years old - and keen. Hard work, dedication and ingenuity were fuelled by fun, companionship, adventure and a dream. The dream grew from very humble beginnings into well-established ski club with well-designed and often innovative developments, Olympic representatives, a close-knit community and more than half a century of amazing skiing. Here's the story.
