Applications Now Open for The Snowvision Rising Stars Camp

The Snowvision Rising Stars Camp offers New Zealand’s next generation of aspiring alpine superstars a chance to train alongside the Snowvision New Zealand Men’s Ski Team and NZ Alpine Olympians to get a taste of what it takes to achieve success on the world stage.

The camp is designed to give emerging U12-U16 athletes an opportunity to immerse themselves in a high-performance environment while increasing their ski racing knowledge and building skills necessary to continue on the path to success. This is a chance to meet other athletes from across the country, forge new friendships and to be mentored by the Snowvision NZ Men’s Ski Team.

The camp is scheduled to take place on snow at Coronet Peak, Friday July 13th. Athletes will be joined by the Snowvision New Zealand Men’s Ski Team members Adam Barwood and Willis Feasey, NZ Olympians Tim Cafe and Ben Griffin, and coach to the Snowvision NZ Men’s Ski Team, Nils Coberger, giving athletes an unprecedented opportunity to take their skiing to the next level. Athletes will also enjoy a Q&A session with the Snowvision NZ Men’s Ski Team and feedback from some of the country’s top coaches. 

The athletes will be led through warm up and activation dryland protocols by Ben Griffin before joining the Snowvision NZ Men’s Team athletes for Slalom training at Rocky Gully.

In the afternoon the athletes will be led through guided free skiing by Adam Barwood and Willis Feasey and then will have the opportunity to ask them their burning questions.

Snow Sports NZ wishes to thank Rising Stars sponsor The Snowvision Foundation for their continued support in youth alpine development.
