NZSIA FUNdamentals – Ski and Ride Program

About the FUNdamentals

The NZSIA FUNdamentals is a national framework and educational resource for children’s skiing and snowboarding in New Zealand.

The progressions of the children are based on NZSIA/SBINZ teaching concepts. There are six levels for the children to progress through which develop balance, movement and performance skills in a variety of terrain and situations around the mountain.

The FUNdamentals also provides resources to parents and children to help prepare and inspire them for their time on the snow.

Children participating in lessons utilising the FUNdamentals receive a card indicating their level of achievement. The card can be used at any participating snow sports school to help identify their level and record their progress.
