Season Pass with Snow Sports NZ Mega Pass Competition

Lake Wanaka, New Zealand- (3 February 2014) – Hot summer days aside, Snow Sports NZ is keeping its attention very much on the winter side of things. As New Zealand’s best snow sports athletes prepare to take on the world at the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Snow Sports NZ is taking the excitement of winter sport to another level with its Mega Pass competition.

One lucky person will win a ‘Mega’ season pass allowing them access to 24 New Zealand resorts for the 2014 season. The 24-resort pass is not available to buy so anyone wanting to enjoy the ultimate winter season will need to enter the competition via the Snow Sport NZ Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/snowsportsnz?sk=app_143103275748075&brandloc=DISABLE&app_data=dlt-1

The Mega Pass covers resorts throughout New Zealand from the larger fields like Whakapapa and Turoa in the north and Cardrona and Treble Cone in the south to some of the lesser known club fields such as Taranaki’s Manganui. Snowplanet, New Zealand’s first and only all-year indoor snow resort and training ground for Olympic snowboard Christy Prior, is also included in the Mega Pass.

The Mega Pass is designed for anyone who loves snows sports, whether you’re an aspiring winter Olympian, hardy weekend warrior or just keen to explore beyond your own backyard this winter. To be in to win the Mega Pass, head to the Snow Sports NZ Facebook page and enter your details. Be sure to ‘like’ the page to receive the latest news in snow sports as well as updates, results and behind-the-scenes action from the Olympic Games in Sochi.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
