In 1985, Gottlieb Braun-Elwert set out on an unchartered adventure. His mission was to ski an unsupported 18 hour journey from the centre of the South Island to the West Coast of New Zealand, across the Southern Alps. He called this route Symphony on Skis. Thirty years on, sisters Carla and Elke Braun-Elwert retrace their late father’s route.
