Fox Peak


Fox Peak is a small club skifield located 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) to the east of Lake Tekapo in New Zealand's South Island. Run by a non-profit organisation, the resort features four ski tows and a total vertical range of 580 metres (1,900 ft). The original name for the mountain was Rowley Peak, named after Thomas Rowley of the Canterbury Association, who was Dean-designate of ChristChurch Cathedral, but who never emigrated to New Zealand.[1][2][3]
