Wow, SBINZ is a quarter of a century old. How about that!

So we’re celebrating with an old-school style boarder-cross race at Cardrona (where our first ever course was held in 1993), that will be FREE for anyone who’s a current member of NZSIA/SBINZ and for all those who have been members in the past too.

And to show their full support for the event, Cardrona are giving away a 2019 season pass as a spot prize too!

This is a participation-focused event, so everyone who enters will get multiple runs with plenty of banter to accompany you down the course. Everyone MUST pre-register – you can do so here (minimum age; 18 years old).

We’ve got three age divisions running for both men and women (age categories have been updated as on 27th September):
* Rome Snowboards Open Division (18-34 year olds)
* Spy Optics Masters Division (35-44 year olds)
* Sims Snowboards & Laryn Osteopathy Legends Division (45+ year olds)

But the divisions don’t stop there, you can enter as a team too!

This is an extra special division with one-off prizes from us here at SBINZ and from the awesome brewers at Rhyme and Reason Brewery. Each team MUST have at least one person in each age category and a female (with 3-5 people total). The winning team will be announced at the after party and will be done on a points system, based on how far each team member goes on the day.

Every team member still enters as an individual too; the team event is just a way to bridge the generation gap. But don’t worry, if you haven’t got a team to join by the time you register, we’ll be slipping people into teams on the morning of the event too.

There’s a whole lot of prizes from our awesome sponsors and a bunch of extra swag to give away, so get involved and pay homage to the 25 year history of snowboard instructing in New Zealand.
