Brief History


The Gingerbread Hut and the Joe Slatter Hut were built by the Mount Rufus Ski Club, comprised of HEC workers at Bronte Park and Tarraleah.

When those construction towns wound down, ownership of the huts devolved to the Wellington Ski Club. The Launceston Walking Club has done recent maintenance on the charming little Gingerbread Hut, originally designed as a ski tow hut. The upstairs section is particularly cosy.
