Snow Sports FUNdamentals Booklets
As Snowplanet is an accredited provider of snow sports instruction by Snow Sports NZ, all children have the oppotunity to sign up to the Snow Sports FUNdamentals Programme. The programme has been developed to encourage kids to engage in snow sports and is based on the development of fundamental skills in the sport of skiing or snowboarding. 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 programme across four disciplines: park, pipe, free ride and race.
