What We Do

Home / What We Do

Welcome to the home of SnowSports ACT.

We are the governing body for all snow sport disciplines within the ACT, working in partnership with Ski and Snowboard Australia and State Associations.

SnowSports ACT brings together the diverse and active ski and snowboard disciplines of Alpine, Skier Cross, Moguls, Snowboard GS, Boardercross, Slopestyle, Halfpipe, and Cross Country.

This not for profit organisation conducts events and programs for elite and recreational skiers and snowboarders.

SnowSports ACT has four fundamental aims:

  • To increase the level of participation in competitive snow sports.
  • To provide events and programs and pathways for entry level athletes in a non threatening team environment and for more competitive, or elite, athletes as they progress.
  • Promote and support ACT SnowSports at all levels
  • To assist and develop appropriate pathways, including funding assistance, for those elite athletes up to and including World Cup and Olympic standard.

Volunteers of SnowSports ACT have key roles in administering and organising races ranging from school level competition for the ACT and Southern NSW region to International Ski Federation (FIS) races

History

ACT skiers first formed an association, the Association of Ski Clubs of the Federal Capital Territory and Southern New South Wales in the early 1930s. In 1948 the Southern Districts Ski Federation was set up, which became the ACT Ski Council in 1967. The Council was superseded by ACT Ski Association which was incorporated in 1977. Up to 1993 the Association was an association of clubs but as of March 1993 the Association has become a company limited by guarantee and open to individual and corporate (including clubs) membership. The Association formally changed its name to SnowSports ACT in 2000 to reflect its direction in promoting participation across all snow sport activities.

 

With the assistance of the ACT Government and the Australian Ski Federation, now Ski & Snowboard Australia (SSA), SnowSports ACT opened an office in 1990 to assist with the running of the races and the progression of the Association from a purely voluntary basis of operation to a professional one employing an Executive Officer.
