This week has been one of amazing snow, amazing weather, sunshine and ice water. Our Snowskoolers have definitely helped raise awareness of and funds for ALS / Motor Neurone Disease as almost everyone has been nominated to do an ice bucket challenge. It almost became competitive to see who could be the most inventive with late night dips in the creek, full-on lake jumps, buckets of snow and even one that followed a skydive.
After the celebratory weekend in Queenstown it was all go again as we got back into training for the Level 2. Monday and Tuesday were two of the best days to be had in New Zealand … not even just in a season but possibly ever! The snow had been falling for days and we got to play some amazing powder before more storms came in. We were well ready for the lovely, calm and sunny weekend!
If your skiing or riding has plateaued … if you’re stuck in a performance rut … if you’re about to give it all away … a week-long SnowSkool improver course in Japan will help you rediscover your snow mojo!
SnowSkool is delighted to introduce another twenty new ski & snowboard instructors to the world.

It's been an eventful week on many fronts what with the Level 1 exams done and dusted, outstanding results celebrated, a new arrival joining our ranks, a birthday celebrated and a road trip to Queenstown. Read on for all the details ...
We've had a mixed bag of weather this week but the upside has been that the winds and storms brought with them a good amount of fresh snow. The focus has been on training - on the mountain and in the classroom - in preparation for the coming week's L1 exams.
We have been asking you to share your #ski & #snowboard selfies with us throughout 2014 for a chance to appear on our Facebook header and WIN a week in Meribel.

Second week done! It's been a mixed bag of weather this week with strong winds blowing all too often but with the L1 exams only a week away, we all persevered and made the most the circumstances. The team's major distraction away from the mountain this week was an epic few rounds of paintball - no need for strategy as the group quickly adopted the much more fun approach of Fire! ... Aim! ... Ready!
Kia ora! Welcome to the first edition of the newsletter from SnowSkool in NZ where we've settled into our new way of life in the Land of the long White Cloud. So far, we've managed to strain just about everything we own at an introductory session at the local gym, smash our first week of training, throw down some spectacular shapes in a dance-off and complete a round of Frisbee golf. Putting aside a couple of laundry faux pas by the boys in apartment 105, we are travelling well and looking forward to the coming week of training.
