Riding with the stars of New Zealand snow sports


Want to ski, snowboard and hang out with world champion and Olympic-level snow sports athletes? 

Three of New Zealand’s top skiers and snowboarders are offering an opportunity for one lucky bidder and a friend to ski or ride together at their favourite local ski area. 

World Champion freeskier Jossi Wells, the world’s number eight-ranked snowboarder Shelly Gotlieb and Winter Olympics freeskier Mitchey Greig are setting aside half a day to join the top bidders in a Ski and Ride with the Stars programme. 

Proceeds from the auction go to Snow Sports New Zealand to support development programmes for stars in the making. 

“It’s a great opportunity to spend a half-day with one of New Zealand’s top skiers or snowboarders while also supporting development of younger snow sports competitors,” Snow Sports NZ chief executive Ross Palmer says. 

The auctions are now live on Trade Me and close on Friday, August 27 at 11.20am.
