Snow Sports FUNdamentals Booklets

As Snowplanet is an accredited provider of snow sports instruction by Snow Sports NZ, all children have the opportunity to sign up to the Snow Sports FUNdamentals Program.

The program has been developed to encourage kids to engage in snow sports and is based on the development of fundamental skiing or snowboarding skills. The achievement awards are consistent throughout ski resorts in New Zealand and are adaptable, meaning those with a disability are also encouraged to achieve to their highest level.

Each child is presented with a progression booklet and is awarded with a FUNdamental level and certificate based on the skills that they have developed over the program across four disciplines: park, pipe, free ride and race.

For more information or to sign up to the FUNdamentals Program, please visit the ‘FUNdamentals Registration’ section on the Snow Sports New Zealand website.
