Contract signing and sold-out snow event

Year after year, the HSZ brings students from Aachen's universities to the slopes at SnowWorld Landgraaf just in time for the start of the winter semester. On November 3, 2022, an important date was at hand: At a meeting between representatives of the HSZ and SnowWorld Landgraaf, a cooperation agreement was signed for the next three years. Afterwards, the guests attended the sold-out snow event at SnowWorld Landgraaf.

Signing of the contract with representatives from Landgraaf

Peter Lynen, director of the HSZ, and Ulrich Weber, deputy director of the HSZ represented the HSZ. Peter Lynen emphasized that the HSZ was pleased to be able to rely on its long-standing partners during this time. From SnowWorld Landgraaf, Pascal Gulpen, General Manager of SnowWorld and Isabell Reckermann, Account Manager Langraaf came to the HSZ to sign the contract. Both sides are very pleased that the long cooperation will be continued.

Many years of cooperation with SnowWorld Landgraaf

The HSZ and SnowWorld have been cooperating for more than 14 years. The HSZ offers several courses and events using SnowWorld Landgraaf as a sports facility. At the Snowevent and the ALMA Snowevent, participants can either make their first attempts on skis or snowboard in workshops or deepen already existing knowledge. In addition, the HSZ offers regular snow sports courses throughout the winter semester, which also take place at SnowWorld Landgraaf.

Snowevent

The Snowevent has a uniting character. Here, students can get to know each other away from the university while practicing snow sports together. Without the ski hall this would be almost impossible for the location in Aachen. Already during the shared bus journey to SnowWorld Landgraaf, students can get to know each other away from the daily study routine and later make contacts while skiing and snowboarding together.

ALMA Snowevent

The ALMA Snowevent has a similar concept to the Snowevent, except that it focuses on international cooperation with universities from Belgium and the Netherlands. All courses and workshops at this event will be held in English. This year's ALMA Snowevent will take place on November 15, and registration is already open on the HSZ´s website.

With the signing of the contract, nothing stands in the way of the HSZ's snow events and snow sports courses in the years to come.
