New Zealand at the Winter Olympic Games

New Zealand made its first appearance at the Winter Olympic Games in Oslo, Norway in 1952 and attended all Winter Games since except in 1956 in Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy and 1964 in Innsbruck, Austria.

New Zealand fielded a bobsleigh team at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympic Games which is its first entry in an Olympic winter sport other than alpine skiing.

The Oceania nation already won a solitary medal at the Winter Games, a silver medal that shines like gold courtesy of Annelise Coberger. The fesity alpine racer placed second in the slalom event to become the first athlete from the Southern Hemisphere to win a medal at the Winter OLympics. Still the nation is still yet to win its first gold medal at the Winter Games.
