Ohakune’s favourite son’ Tom Campbell is the well-known & widely loved son of Turoa Grooming/Trail Manager Fred Campbell. Tom grew up skiing Turoa & worked as an RAL groomer driver for several years, being heavily involved in building Turoa Parks. Tom spent around the last 6 years driving & building parks at Cardrona where he created what was regarded by many professional freestyle athletes as ‘the best jump in the world’. A talented skier & key pillar of the NZ freeski community, Tom will be dearly missed. We'll be celebrating his life by putting on an event that is all about going large, having fun & unleashing creativity. See you there! #TCGC
