Small skifields worried after alpine passes rule changes

From Morning Report, 8:49 am on 15 June 2020

Boutique Canterbury skifields are fearful for their future as new Transport Agency rules around snow and State Highway 73 take effect.

A new system has been introduced for the southern alpine passes which, when there's snow, will limit movement for cars, even those with chains.

Porter Heights, Mount Cheeseman, Craigieburn, Temple Basin and Broken River skifields could all be affected by the changes.

Ross Campbell is president of the Broken River Ski Club.
