With Cardrona open, snow guns pumping and snow falling in the last couple of days, the Wanaka Ski and Snowsports Club (WSSC) is hosting a night celebrating the success of Wanaka’s snowsports athletes during the 2017 Northern Hemisphere.
WSSC secretary Bonny Teat said,
“Amazing results were achieved across all disciplines by New Zealand’s snowsports athletes with many striving to meet the 2018 Olympic selection criteria. The evening is an opportunity for an insight into the lives of these athletes and to view their outstanding footage.”
Local free ride tour athletes Sam Lee, Craig Murray pictured at Hockfugen, snowboarder Zoi Sadowski -Synott, free skiers Jackson and Jossi Wells and Finn Bilous, alpine racers Corey Peters, Adam Barwood, Willis Feasey, Piera Hudson, Alice Robinson and Georgia Bushell, free ride tour snowboarder Finn Duffy and snowboarder Tiarn Collins will all be featuring in the snowsports success stories. The athletes are planning to talk in a relaxed format, similar to a Ted X style.
MC for the night will be Sam Smoothy with Fraser McDougall coordinating the footage.
The event is at the Lake Wanaka Centre on June 18 at 6pm.
There will be a cash donation entry, drinks, soup and finger food available for purchase.
A short live auction of season passes and other items will help fundraise for the athletes.
