Becoming an Adaptive Snowsports member has never been easier. Membership comes with a wide range of benefits and by becoming a member you can help to support our efforts in promoting access to snow sports by disabled people across New Zealand. Membership is available to all New Zealanders with a permanent functional impairment.

We understand that everyone has different needs and wants. To cater for this we offer two types of membership. Please read through the membership options and benefits available to determine which one would suit you best. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us.

Why should I become a Member

Membership gives people with disabilities a voice in the snow sports industry. You will become an Adaptive member of Snow Sports NZ. Importantly a large membership base improves our chances of accessing funding for better resources, events, training and facilities.

Adaptive Snowsports Membership for 2016 will be available from June.  

If you need help please contact our office O3 443 4O85

2016 membership benefits

Adaptive members will receive lift pass discounts from all commercial ski areas and helper for free at Snowplanet. If a helper is required to actively support the member on snow this will be recorded on the membership card. The active helper can also receive a discounted pass.

Retail benefits are also available.

These benefits are generously given to members by the ski areas, snow sports industry, and other local business to support you and make snow sports more accessible. The added cost of snow sports or limited use of some facilities, for people with an impairment is recognised.

Membership benefits are only available on production of a valid Adaptive Snowsports NZ membership photo ID card.


How long is my membership valid for?


 Membership will be valid from 1 July 2015 to 30 June 2016

Membership can be updated via the website from mid June onwards. Cards can be issued throughout the year. Many overseas ski areas accept the New Zealand membership card.
