“I am pleased that my skiing is heading in the right direction and that I can continue to represent New Zealand on the National Team,” said Adam Barwood who was a member of the New Zealand Olympic Winter Team to Sochi this year.
"It’s a great privilege to be named to the National Ski Racing Team,” said Nick Prebble. "The season has started well and I’m looking forward to the races ahead. The big races this season include the ANC Cup series at Mt Hotham in Australia and Coronet Peak and Mt Hutt in New Zealand. I’m also looking forward to the World Champs in Beaver Creek in the USA in February next year.”
“It’s a huge honour to be named to the National Team and have the opportunity to represent NZ,” said 2014 Winter Paralympic silver medallist, Corey Peters. “I’m excited and hungry to build for the 2018 Winter Paralympics in PyeongChang, Korea. My personal goals and expectations of myself have been set and now it’s about working hard to make them into reality."
“It’s a great honour and privilege to be named to the New Zealand Adaptive Snow Sports Team,” said Adam Hall who this year marks his ninth season as a member of the national team. “Having the opportunity to represent New Zealand is something which means a lot to me. Performing out of our skin and winning medals is what it is all about at this level.
“I am currently working hard towards another four year campaign to represent NZ at the 2018 Paralympic Winter Games where the aim will be to medal multiple times. Next season I have the 2015 World Champs where I am working hard to have strong performances across multiple events and continue to stay at the top of my game across the world cup circuit. I’m looking forward to the journey ahead.”
Snow Sports NZ wishes to congratulate all athletes on their selection.
