Ever wanted to get into ski rac­ing?

Ski & Snow - - Race Update -

If you have thought about get­ting into ski rac­ing here are some teams that of­fer train­ing op­tions for ath­letes aged 8+yrs from En­try level to FIS. Ath­letes com­pete on a re­gional, na­tional and in­ter­na­tional level. This is a start­ing point to get se­lected for the NZ Ski Team and race in World Cup events and the Olympics for NZ. Ski rac­ing is a very so­cial sport for both the par­ents and ath­letes. Think Satur­day morn­ing sports on the snow. There is a big com­mit­ment to be on snow ev­ery week­end and school hol­i­days but its fun and the whole fam­ily can be in­volved. If the moun­tain is closed for the day, most teams will of­fer dry-land train­ing for the ath­letes. Visit each web­site for more info on the teams or go to www.skirac­ing.org.nz for more info. The sea­son starts in June and fin­ishes early Oc­to­ber with off-sea­son train­ing of­fered in the north­ern hemi­sphere.
