ANU Snowsports is the premier club on campus for snow bunnies and steezy snowboarders to enjoy the wonderful Australian snowy mountains. Our snowy mountains include beautiful locations such as Thredbo, Mt Buller and of course their respective clubs, Heller Keller and Mooseheads (That’s right, interstate Mooseheads baby). The snow is not what makes our club the best; it’s the people. ANU Snowsports is filled with some of the craziest, loosest, sexiest and friendliest people at ANU.
For many the ANUS members, the colder temperatures are a herald for the highly anticipated upcoming University Week at Thredbo (17th July – 23rd July) and Snow University Games at Mt. Buller (30th August – 3rd September). In addition to these major events we run an annual coast trip at the beginning of the year, joint events with ANU Touch (TOUCHing ANUS), annual Snowball and many others. All of these events are excellent ways to get involved and make a bunch of new mates.
I have personally been a member of ANU Snowsports since 2014 but did not take advantage full of this membership until 2015 where I participated in Snow University games at Thredbo and Snowball at the end of the year. Snow University Games week was a marathon of drinking, skiing, ridiculous games and just general indecency. At the end of this marathon I was exhausted but it was one of the best weeks of my university career.
Uni games is not just about drinking though, for those who are keen competitors there are plenty of opportunities to compete against some of the best skiers and boarders in Australia across all disciplines. Although I got absolutely smoked last year, I had the opportunity to compete against Australian Skier-X Olympians. Last year the combined ANU/UC Snowsports team achieved multiple placings in both snowboarding and skiing.
For those looking to get involved immediately rather than waiting for the start of the snow season our combined event with touch, TOUCHing ANUS, is on the Thursday of week 10 (5th of May). This amazing race pub-crawl is one of the must events for the year.
