Snow Australia is the nationally and internationally recognised National Sporting Organisation (NSO) for competitive snow sports in Australia and is affiliated with the Fédération Internationale de Ski (FIS), the Australian Olympic Committee (AOC), Paralympics Australia (PA) and the recognised by Sport Australia (SA).
Snow Australia manages athlete pathways, conducts events and programs in Alpine Skiing, Cross Country Skiing, Freestyle Skiing, Snowboarding, Para-alpine, Para-snowboard and specialty sub discipline activities within each.
Snow Australia has the overarching responsibility for the entire national athlete pathway, from entry level through to elite, across all disciplines. To meet this responsibility, SSA engages with many different organisations including ski resorts, Federal & State Governments, State Sporting Organisations, Clubs, sporting institutes and industry peak bodies.
Every year numerous junior, developing and elite athletes from all snowsport disciplines (Alpine, Cross Country, Freestyle, Snowboard and Para Snowsports) head overseas to train and compete, representing Australia at all levels of competition. The majority of athletes below World Cup level are self-funded. Snow Australia's fundraising activities provide assistance to athletes with travel, training and competition costs.
