Broken River

show full reporthide full reportUpdated: 9:42am Saturday 21 Jul 2018 - The weekend has arrived and so has the weather. Come on up as... the snow starts to fall. Things will soften quickly and soon you'll be slashing through the great creamy drifts of NZ pow! The tram is down, so make sure you bring some proper footwear and get your legs warmed up for skiing by hiking through our beach forest. Access tow is a little shiny, so recommended for experienced rope tow users only. Otherwise keep following the access road to Palmer Lodge.
