Covid Policy

Keeping our Adaptive Snowsports Canterbury community safe whilst on ASC activities is always our highest priority.

We ask that you refrain from skiing with us if you have Covid-19, are awaiting test results or you are experiencing Covid-19 symptoms.

We are following Government guidelines in asking all people to wear masks in our vehicles.

For most ski areas, including Mt Hutt, masks are mandatory indoors – in buildings, buses and shuttles (for those 12 years +) unless eating or drinking. Masks will not be required on chairlifts or in lift loading areas at this stage. 

You are not currently required to provide your proof of vaccination on ASC activities.

We will be reviewing the policy regularly across the year and if or when changes are made by the Government. When this happens we will advise everyone by email & post it on our website.

This policy will apply to all Members, Helpers and Instructors until further notice.

Scheduled Activities for 2022 Snow Season

ASC offers a number of scheduled activities every winter season.

Keep up to date with what’s happening.

Sign up to our monthly newsletters and keep up to date. Just email admin@asc.org.nz and ask to be included. Adaptive Snowsports Canterbury encourages people with disabilities to learn to ski not only for recreation, but also to experience the sense of freedom of mobility.
