More info regarding lift passes, race costs, accomodation, social events and transport will be released closer to the event date subject to interest. we will keep you posted!
Time to show evry other uni in australia why we’re no.1 on and off the snow…
It's time to start thinking about our pinnacle competition of the year, National Winter Uni Games, Snowsports. The University of Melbourne has won more Snow Uni Games Championships than any other university, so we are looking to field a super strong team to win back the title this year!
Winter Uni Games is one of the most enjoyable and rewarding events of the winter season. It involves competing against all the universities in Australia both on and off the slopes.
Events to choose from (for both skiers and snowboarders):
• Giant slalom (GS)
• Super giant slalom (Super G)
• Skier/Boarder cross
• Slopestyle and rails
Whether you are an aspiring Olympian or a social snowboarder that can make it down a blue run we want you! The races themselves may be won by the best of the best, but the overall title is won by those racers that show up to their races and make it down the slopes.
We will be staying as a team at Thredbo, NSW for the entireity of the trip. We may even do a night somewhere else the night before the comp to split the drive up if there is interest. You compete during the day in your nominated events. Then at nights there are social events giving you the opportunity to get to know your fellow rivals from all over Australia.
Worried about uni work? Don't worry about it, as you are competing at nationals for the uni we are able to get you a letter to present to your tutor/ lecturer that helps in waiving attendance for the week of competition and can even secure you extensions on assignments due around this time.
You must be a MUST member to attend all trips including this one, selection for AUC’s is subject to UniMelb sport aporval.
Keep your eye out on our social media for information regarding our trip sales evening and how to secure your spot to represent UniMelb at AUC’s for 2019.
