NZSIA Turns 50!!

24th – 26th September, 2021

Welcome to NZSIA’s 50th year of operations. I think you’ll agree it’s a birthday worth celebrating and having a good time.

Events can be booked through the website in the NZSIA shop

The NZSIA HQ wants to get the ‘ family’ together, past and present. The plan is a weekend of remembering, riding, partying and generally chewing the fat.

50 years is a significant milestone and the fact NZSIA has continued to grow and blossom is down to the energy, enthusiasm and vision of you, its members. We would love for you to join the party for some or all of the events over the weekend of the 24 – 26 September, 2021.

TEAM NZSIA 50th are super keen to make this a special evening, but we really need your help!!

  1. Photos

We are going to be running an AV presentation during the Saturday evening event 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 https://wetransfer.com/
  • Email photos to: Sheena Haywood: sheena@sheenahaywood.com 
  • 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: 20th August 2021

To give you an idea of what we are on the lookout for:

  1. 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: admin@nzsia.org – if you have something you would be able to lend for the weekend.

Accommodation: There are many options of accommodation nearby, a good place to check out would be booking.com or Agoda
