Snow business sixty years skiing in New Zealand

N/A

By Ralph Markby 

Snow Business chronicles the history of a sport that has exhilarated New Zealand skiers for over 60 years. Ralph Markby, a skier who first buckled up a pair of homemade wooden skis in 1944, traces the rise of ski culture in New Zealand along with the sport's development - from the emergence of skiclubs after WWII to the expansion of commercial ski-fields, and the steady improvement and advances in equipment. The author well remembers the days when skiers had to trudge uphill on foot for every run, and here he tells the stories of the skiing pioneers who laid the ground work for the skifield developers who followed them. The development of each skifield was not only costly and risky it also involved the adventurous spirit and drive of those dedicated to fight against all odds. Snow Business is extensively illustrated throughout with stunning photographs, both historical and contemporary.
