Our Story

Coastal Cowhides is a fundraising initiative setup by the Hudson family so Piera can remain on snow and represent NZ. Piera is currently world ranked 109 in Giant Slalom from 2500 FIS registered women and is the top world ranked NZ athlete for Slalom. Alpine receives no funding from Sport NZ, so she is 100% self funded by Coastal Cowhides fundraising efforts and a benefactor. Her annual programme costs are $150K which covers her coaches salary, training and competition fees, flights, travel and accommodation 6 months overseas and 3 months in NZ. Her short term aim is to represent NZ at the 2019 World Championships in Are, Sweden and compete on the World Cup Circuit.

All proceeds from Coastal Cowhides go towards Piera’s training and competition expenses and you can support her by purchasing from Coastal Cowhides and by passing on this website link to ski enthusiasts you know to piera.co.nz as this helps us with her equipment sponsorship https://www.facebook.com/piera.skiracer

Thank you very much for your support!
