Amelia McGuiness Events
The Amelia McGuiness Australian Snowsports Development Foundation (AMASDF) was established in memory of Amelia McGuiness who tragically died in a skiing accident in 2009.
The AMASDF is recognised and commended throughout the snowsports community for its contribution and support of up-and-coming athletes. In the 10 years since the Foundation was established, it has awarded $212,160 in Snowsports Scholarships. This has been achieved through the ongoing support of schools, the resorts, families, individuals and the business community.
Fundraising events are held, such as the Amelia McGuiness Memorial Time Trails in Ski and Snowboard, where all monies raised are distributed to our emerging athletes via the Amelia McGuiness Scholarship, which opens in September each year. This scholarship is dedicated to providing practical support (for equipment, training, and resources), to up-and-coming winter snowsports athletes from the age of 10 to 18 years old, across all disciplines including disabled snowsports.
