Upcoming events

What's going on? We connect with key people in the outdoor sector by hosting or attending several key events in New Zealand.


Southern Hemisphere Alpine Conference 

Formerly the Southern Hemisphere Avalanche Conference, the 2017 conference broadens its focus to alpine snow environments, and brings together New Zealand and international delegates who are interested in helping to shape the future of alpine snow safety. 

Delegates will include snow safety professionals, guides, search and rescue specialists, outdoor educators, researchers, weather forecasters, commercial operators, land managers, mountain enthusiasts and more

The SHAC has three key objectives

  1. To provide a platform for people interested in alpine snow environments to share ideas, network and enhance their knowledge and practical skills 
  2. To build strong partnerships that connect our alpine community together, and
  3. To generate opportunities to develop future strategies and collaborations that help more people stay safe in the outdoors.
