The Winter Games NZ saw Kiwis take 2 World Cup podiums in Snowboard Slopestyle, 7 out of 12 podiums in the Freeride World Qualifier 4 star event and strong performances from Kiwis in all disciplines.
But we want to see more success. In more World Cups, the Olympic Games in Pyeongchang and on the Freeride World Tour.
That’s why Snow Sports New Zealand has teamed up with Mons Royale to create Black Snow. An initiative to get passionate snowsports fans together to watch Kiwi’s competing on the world stage. We have also created a line of garments to raise funds for Snow Sports New Zealand’s Athlete Development programs.
Imagine if as many people got together to watch our snow sports athletes as they watch things like the All Blacks and the America’s Cup. Wouldn’t that be rad? … Let’s make it happen!
Just because it’s summer here doesn’t mean we can’t support the crew who are killing it in competitions across the Northern Hemisphere winter. #BlackSnow is all about supporting kiwi athletes going global.
Black Snow is all about community. Head over to the BLACK SNOW Facebook Page to stay connected and updated on the kiwi team.
You can organise, attend and support a #BlackSnow Chapter event to watch our athletes at in the Northern Hemisphere in any location across New Zealand. If you’d like to help set up an event, all you need to do is download our #BlackSnow Toolkit here and get organised!
Don’t forget to check out our supporters gear to help you cheer along and support our kiwi snow sport atheletes. Check out the BLACK SNOW supporters range here
