Snow Sports NZ Announces Alpine Manager Appointment

Lake Wanaka, New Zealand (24 March 2015) – Snow Sports New Zealand is pleased to announce the appointment of Hannah Hazeldine as its new Alpine Manager.

“The calibre of applicants for the Alpine Manager role was extremely high,” says Snow Sports NZ Director of Coach & Sport Development, Adam Dooney. “The Alpine Manager plays a pivotal role within our organisation and we are delighted to have secured Hannah for the job.”

Hannah comes to the national organisation with valuable experience in planning and executing snow sports events and has proven ability to manage schedules, organise teams and offer consistently high quality outcomes.

Originally from the UK, she has worked within the snow sports industry in Europe as well as New Zealand as a technical delegate, event coordinator, coach and instructor.

Hannah has been a member of the Timing & Calculations sub-committee on the British TD Forum and her qualifications include Timing & Calculations and Race Official Level 2. 

She has spent two seasons as the Events & Coaching Coordinator at Turoa, Mt Ruapehu and three years as Events Co‐ordinator and Chief of Championships for the British University Dryslope Championships, for the British University Indoor Series and for the British University Alpine Championships.

Hannah is focused on building strong relationships within the snow sports community and has proven experience working alongside organising committees, ski clubs and regional schools.

In 2014 she worked with the Ngati Rangi Trust to set up and run the first Aotearoa Iwi Snow Champs and considers this a particular highlight of her career to date due to the close links between the ski area and the local community.

Hannah will start in the Wanaka office of Snow Sports NZ on 18 May. Until this date Adam Dooney will remain as the point of contact for matters relating to Alpine Ski Racing.
