Image holder for not sport news.

It is an off year for Paralympic winter sport.  Still, this sport is new and has a lot of interest because of the general interest in snowboarding.  Some Paralympic alpine skiers are definetely looking to make the transition.  The sport is one of the most exciting to be watching right now, and there is a lot more going on than you see right here.  People of all disability types compete including ID, deaf, VI and physical disabilities.



  • On February 7, there is a Para-snowboarding event at Copper Mountain.
  •  IPC Alpine Skiing Para-Snowboard World Championships will be held in La Molina, Spain from February 21-28.


  • The 18th Winter Deaflympics take place in Khanty-Mansiysk / Magnitogorsk, Russian Federation from March 28 to April 5. Sports on the program include alpine skiing, curling, cross country skiing, ice hockey, and snowboarding.


  • Join New Zealand ski and snowboard paralympians on a three-day talent identification & skill development camp. Learn what it takes to get podium results on the world stage. Snow Sports NZ is running a camp at Mt Hutt from June 19 – 21.
