Welcome to 2023!!

We are well into March – temperatures are starting to drop – the New Zealand winter is not far away!!

We are wrapping up a very busy Northern Hemisphere season – availability was challenging due to such high demand – hopefully most of you managed to get on a course you wanted.

So great to be back overseas – we managed to operate in Japan, Switzerland and Austria doing Level One, Level Two and Level Three Certifications, Childrens Certifications, and a Freeski course. Looking forward to seeing what the Northern Winter 2023/2024 will bring as we regain our momentum.

Welcome to all our new Level Ones – good timing to jump on board – this newsletter is to let everyone know about a new very special members benefit – Salomon!

We’ve been working with Solis, the distributor of Salomon, to give NZSIA members access to industry pricing on skis, snowboards, boots, bindings and accessories in New Zealand. This offer is open to all members with a valid membership. To register for the Pro Deal all you need to do is ensure your membership fees are up-to-date by 30th April 2023.

To register with Solis you will need a current membership number, so renew your fees today. If you’re already current, you can go straight to the Solis Pro Deal site and register. The offer activates on 30th April 2023, so you’ll have access to all the latest gear from Salomon before winter arrives. Plus you’ll also enjoy preferential pricing across Solis’ portfolio of outdoor brands including including Aztron, Arc’Teryx, Endura, Flylow, Goal Zero, Grayl, Quadlock and Ride Concepts.

Renew your membership here

If you are already current – you can get underway with signing up for the Salomon Pro Deal here: Here (it will activate after 30th April 2023)

If you miss the deadline, you will have to wait another year when we hopefully get the opportunity to do the cycle all over again.

Awesome opportunity – get that membership current before 30th April and you are eligible to make this happen!!
