Broken River Ski Area is a ski field maintained by the Broken River Ski Club located in the Southern Alps of New Zealand. Nestled in the Craigieburn Range and adjacent to Craigieburn Valley Ski Area; Broken River offers terrain for all levels of skiers and snowboarders. Broken River is known for its warm inviting atmosphere, great off-piste terrain, quality snow and a backcountry feel.  

Broken River is a 1.5 hour, 100km drive from Christchurch. The road is well maintained and two-wheel drive cars can access the base area. Check the snow report and be sure to carry chains in adverse conditions. RV’s and campervans are not recommended. Once arriving at the base area, hop on the Tyndall Tramway to access the ticket offices and accommodation lodges.
