*The event at Falls Creek in 2017, organised by SASKI’s SA Interschools Committee, is the only official Interschools Snowsport event representing South Australia.

The respective fastest overall male and female, primary and secondary student will thus become the state champion in their respective discipline. Any other resort claiming to be holding a similar event has no connection with SASKI.

Suitably qualified teams and/or individuals will be eligible to enter the National Interschools Championships in September at Mt Buller (2017) or Perisher (2018).

SASKI Week, as it is now fondly known, is the name given to the week in which the SA Interschools Snowsport Championships are held.  It’s not just a race, it is South Australia’s special week at Falls Creek, where the activities in the village celebrate SA skiing and snowboarding and the people from SA who love their snow sports!  This event is very inclusive, welcoming beginners to advanced skiers and snowboarders.  Falls Creek do a marvellous job of looking after us all!

  • Race participants, their families, their teachers receive generous discounts on many things including: resort entry, lift, lesson and equipment hire packages, food and beverages and other services.  Access to Resort Entry discount, at Resort Entry booth, is strictly by presentation of race entry documents, and cannot be prepaid.
  • SASKI members receive half price entry this week (only).  Present your SASKI membership document at the Resort Entry booth.
