Representing New Zealand in Argentina

This past New Zealand winter I was fortunate enough to be selected as one of six representatives from Snowboard Instruction New Zealand to go to Interski in Argentina, September 2015.

Over the next year, on the build-up to the event, I’ll be working closely with the other five guys on the Snowboard Team, as well as the selected Ski Team members and our one token Telemarker. We’ll be putting a lot of effort into planning various on-snow clinics and a rather intricate indoor presentation.

Along the way, we’ll be publishing a simple blog to share our accounts and help bring back our learnings to the NZSIA membership. Have a read of our first day getting together as Team Snowboard here.
