Members will be saddened to learn Kurt passed away at home on Wednesday evening.
After immigrating to Australia in 1948 Kurt became a giant of the Australian skiing community; as a competitor, ski gear manufacturer/importer, event organiser, committee member, mentor and sponsor.
Kurt worked tirelessly with skiing bodies and the NPWS, and was also a keen volunteer with the Kurrajong bush fire brigade.
We have been very fortunate to have Kurt as Patron of SASC.
Kurt’s biography “FLAME OF LEVITICUS” was launched at Thredbo on 15th August will be his memorial. Contact Alan Fredericks for details firstname.lastname@example.org
The book explains the story of this brave but gentle person. A self confessed rogue, Kurt embraced justice & humility.
The Southern Alps Ski Club members extend our deepest sympathy to Kurt’s family and close friends.
