Coolest Field I've Been To

"Some trips are too good to only make once! Without question, Broken River is one of the most unique holidays I've had to enjoy. The unique lodges and slopes are perfectly situated along the rugged Southern Alpine region, built by a staunch group of mountaineers in the 50’s, the evolution of the club infrastructure is testament to the people who began creating this amazing place 60 years ago. THANK YOU BR CREW!" James McBride, Melbourne Australia.
