About My Name is Michael Norrie and I have been skiing since the age of four. It is my greatest

passion, dream and a joy I have pursued all my life. My Competitive Career has had many stepping stones. It begun with the Mt Ruapehu Race team at the age of 15. During these years I progressed technically, competing in the the North Island Cup.

The past season I have competed in the NZ leg of the Free Ride world tour as well as local events:

This season I plan again on competing across the country. With me on this journey I will be taking my sponsors, maximising exposure through public interaction on and off the slopes, as well as at competitive events.

With out these sponsors, I know I would not be able to do what I do, and it is my absolute aim to maximise their return on their personal investment in me. I will be working as hard as a can to achieve top level results, and my goals for podium finishes.

What sponsors get by investing in me is the exposure of a commanding

presence on the ski hill.

who I ski for

Where ever I go skiing I get questioned about . I field constant questions about what ski gear people should by. This word of mouth is the best advertising a brand can get.


If you have any questions please contact me using the website, or else see my C.V. for details. I hope you have enjoyed this portfolio, and I look forward to seeing many of you on the hill! May the season ahead be fruitful and injury free. Ciao Michael Norrie
