Industry Discount for 2023

It will be a voucher system again like last year, allocated from your Resort Snowsports Manager. Each resort will have a limited number of vouchers, giving the resorts the ability to target where they would like to further develop their Snowsports School.

We recommend securing your place at full price, then if you are eligible for a voucher at a later date, we can apply the discount retrospectively.

Getting current

Memberships rolled over on the 1st Jan 2023. Renewing for 2023 can be done through your profile (remember if you miss a year, fees accrue): https://www.nzsia.org/member/

  1. Log into your profile here.
  2. Make sure you have a photo uploaded to your profile (similar to a passport photo).
  3. Once you have paid, a PDF version of your card will be created by the office and emailed to you.
  4. If you require a physical card, you can purchase one from our NZSIA shop for $5 through your profile.

Booking on courses

Once you are current, you can then book on courses and get underway with your elearning. Check out the division calendars and see what is available:

Hope you enjoy the start of the season if you are based in New Zealand and near a resort!! We will be in touch in a few weeks as we start the hunt for the Instructor of the Year 2023.
