By Geoffrey Hughes, one of the founders of Thredbo.
This book needed to be written, and who better to write it than Geoffrey Hughes, one of the original founders of Thredbo. Geoffrey first laid eyes on the vast, rich forest of Thredbo Valley in 1955, and envisioned a ski resort for all. Thus began the tremendous transformation and development of one of Australia's most popular holiday destinations, Thredbo Ski Resort.
This book is a first-hand historical account of the beginnings of Thredbo Ski Resort. Geoffrey Hughes is one of the four founding members of Thredbo and designer of the first Thredbo ski tow. Geoffrey has many interesting anecdotes, including an exploding ski tow hut, and the first chairlift covering a mile which cost 35,000 pounds to build.
This book is a must read for all Australians who are interested in their country's progress and in the contribution of talented new Australians who come from diverse backgrounds and cultures.
