Adaptive Snowsports Festival NZ


The Adaptive Snowsports Festival was started over 10 years ago to create a fun and social atmosphere for Adaptive skiers, snowboarders and snow lovers to ski together.  It is now organised by a dedicated group of Volunteers – Snowsports NZ and NZ Adaptive Committee – who put in their time, sweat and superb energy into this event! – to be honest we just want to go skiing!  As you can tell, the ethos above is still the foundations of what we do and enjoy over this awesome weekend!

This event is to provide a social and developmental atmosphere for all adaptive skiers to come together and enjoy the thrill of snowsports! If it’s your first time, amazing, if it’s your 10th then Welcome once more!

Over the duration of this weekend there are multiple events to get involved with, prizes to win and a great support network dedicated to ensuring you get the best out of your time on the snow!
