Alternative participation opportunities that address the limitations of the alert levelWhat questions or scenarios do you have for Sport NZ if NZ were to move to this Alert level?How many days would your organisation take to shift delivery from Alert Level 2

Snow Sports NZOn mountain / resort skiing, snowboarding, racing and competitions. HPSNZ Gym in Wanaka open with athletes training. Training on and off snow for officials, volunteeers and technical officers.Congregating in resort cafes/shelters limited to 500 so eating and drinking undertaken in small groups/cars etcAny prediction on timing would be valuable information3 days for SSNZ however the resorts would need varying lead times and this would depend on when during the season this occured. E.g. it may be too late in the ski season to shift their operational levels as it may not be ecomomic.
