Family Rates 

It is great to see families having together fun in the snow. At Broken River children under 11 years of age on January 1st of the current year get complimentary skiing. If you have older children our family lift pass may suit you. Our ski school also runs special programmes for children of all ages and abilities.

Tow Belts and Glove Savers

Our ski tows are ground-based rope tows. You will require a tow belt with a tow clip (also known as a nutcracker) to ride our ski tows. The lift pass includes complimentary use of a tow belt which must be returned to the Ticket Office at the end of the day. We also sell specialised ski harnesses and tow clips on the mountain.

We also hire out ski harnesses at $10 per day.

Glove savers are highly recommended and may be purchased at the Ticket Office or at ski retail shops.  

New to rope tows?

Relax, don’t worry, our friendly staff will help you master this in no time and the "slow" button on the Access Tow will help you become a pro more quickly. Also check out our rope tows 101 page.
