Parks Programmes

Our programmes offers a combination of progression and competition preparation.

We offer our Parks Squad programme as a season long set. They reflect the progression of the season and best utilise the opportunities we have at the time.

With world-class coaching, a supportive environment, and a “club” feel, our HPC has solidified its place on New Zealand’s competitive snow sports pathway. Over the years, our programmes have trained elite Winter Olympic and X Games ski and snowboard athletes, including the Wells brothers, Zoi Sadowski-Synnott and Nico Porteous.
