Your Support

Even though we are delaying the full celebrations, we want to take this time to keep gathering our history.

TEAM NZSIA 50th are super keen to make this a special weekend (over the year), but we really need your help!

1. Photos

We are going to be running an AV presentation during the Saturday evening event in 2022 and would really like to share all the amazing memories you have had over the years with NZSIA. Also this is a golden opportunity to curate and archive our organisation’s history with your help. We will take them in any format, email or post. For post, pop cardboard around your precious old pictures if you would like to mail them to Sheena. (Include your address so we can get them back to you).

Sheena would like them in:

  • JPEG files – and ideally use the WeTransfer app
  • Email photos to: Sheena Haywood:
  • Phone:+64 274 88 00 88 – if you have any questions
  • Post: Stunning Stuff Productions, PO Box 1513, Queenstown, New Zealand – if you would like to mail them in.
  • Photos in by: 13th August 2022

2. Decorating

We have some amazing ladies from Wanaka helping us with the decorating for our evenings: The Full Effect. If you have kept some great older ski equipment etc and would like to share it with us for the night, we would love to hear from you. We will also be trying to gather in a few old Interski uniforms.

Please email: – if you have something you would be able to lend for the weekend.
