These two talked about this event at Chuck Berry’s wing suit flight across Auckland which marked fifty days until games start on August 21.
The best sportsmen and sportswomen from New Zealand will be competing against Paralympic snow-sport athletes and Olympic snow-sport athletes from different parts of the world.

Peters is very successful sportsmen and he won a silver medal at the Paralympic Games in Sochi in 2014.
He said that he is very excited because this year he will be able to play on their home turf. They always have to travel all around the world to compete against strong and the best athletes in the world, but now they feel like this year everything will be much better, since they will have large support at home.
Both of them know how this event is important for New Zealand, so that’s why they want to spread the word and simply do the best they can.
The ski fields opened up few weeks ago, so now they will have a chance to practice and prepare themselves for this amazing event.
