      History. Founded in , the Aorangi ski club began as a group of people drawn together by a love of skiing. Each year the group made trips to the Hermitage and, one evening, in the Hermitage bar, decided to tackle skiing closer to home. It was decided to form a permanent club and thus Aorangi was born. The majestic Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park is an expanse of untouched, awe inspiring alpine landscape sprawled out over more than km in the Mackenzie region. From unbelievably blue lakes and wide open skies, to jagged mountain ranges piercing the clouds, exploring Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park offers an off-the-beaten-track adventure.
