All the major universities in Australia attend Snow Uni Games. There are more events for both boarders and skiers than at VIC IVs and the competition is tougher. The University of Melbourne often wins the entire competition and so we take it very seriously. Being part of the best team in Australia is quite an awesome experience and totally worth the effort.
Registering to race at Snow Uni Games gives you access to all the social events put on by the organisers. Whereas Melbourne and a lot of the bigger universities are there to win, there are heaps of smaller universities that come just to party. One gets a pretty sweet party/racing mix at Uni Games. On the last night is a black tie dinner where all the awards are given out.
