We are extremely proud to announce Jossi Wells, Nico Porteous and Zoi Sadowski-Synnott as our first Winter Games NZ Ambassadors. Jossi, who is one of New Zealand’s most successful winter athletes and has competed in three Winter Games, explains his feelings towards our event. “I believe the Winter Games NZ have played a crucial role in the awareness of snow sports in New Zealand. This event is such an asset to our snow community and I am extremely honoured to be an Ambassador.”
Olympic bronze medallists Zoi Sadowski-Synnott and Nico Porteous, who both competed in the 2017 Olympic Winter Games before quenching the Kiwi Winter Olympic medal drought in PyeongChang South Korea, are working towards this year’s FIS Junior Freestyle Ski and Snowboard World Championships at the Games. Training is in full swing and they are both stoked to be Ambassadors and inspire other young New Zealand and International athletes.
