The Snowvision Rising Stars Camp offers New Zealand’s next generation of alpine superstars, a chance to train alongside the New Zealand Men’s Ski Team and NZ Alpine Olympians and to get a taste of what it takes to achieve success on the world stage. The Rising Stars 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.
The Snowvision Rising Stars Camp is scheduled to take place on snow at Coronet Peak on Sunday July 16th. Athletes will be joined by the New Zealand Men’s Ski Team members Adam Barwood and Willis Feasey, NZ Olympians Tim Café and Ben Griffin, and coach to the 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 NZ Men’s Ski Team and feedback from some of the country’s top coaches.
The coaches will work with all the athletes throughout strategic training environments, including dryland components, providing them with opportunities to further enhance and develop their knowledge and skill set.
“We are looking forward to watching future World Cup stars as they take part in this unique opportunity to meet racers from across the country, forge new friendships and to be mentored by the NZ Men’s Ski Team. We are hoping to give these driven young athletes an experience they will remember for the rest of their lives,” says Hannah Hazeldine, Snow Sports NZ Alpine Manager.
Snow Sports NZ wishes to thank Rising Stars sponsor, The Snow Vision Foundation for their continued support in youth alpine development.
