Jarrod Gubecka

He’s going into his second year as the club’s President and has managed to navigate us through some rough waters last year. Jarrod’s the type of party animal that WILL walk his talk (just ask about his black diamond tattoo) but can also be serious, especially when it comes to his beloved Snowriders Family. On top of that he’s an expert drinker and will race you to the bottom of a glass almost as fast as he will the bottom of a snow-topped mountain 🤙


Alina Peintner

Meet our Secretary, Alina!
This will be Alina’s second year as secretary for QUT Snowriders! Alina is our official mum on the trip! So if you need something to cure that hangover 🥂, someone to hype you up for that insta shot 📸 or even just for a good old DM 💙, she’s your girl! Alina’s also a registered ski instructor so if you see her on the slopes don’t be afraid to ask for a helping hand. ⛷🏂

Social Coordinator

Ella McGrath

Ella’s back for her second year as social coordinator and better than ever!
And this year her event execution, bar-tab booking, and friendship founding skills are honed and practiced to perfection to ensure a killer 2021! Not to mention her snow legs are aching to click back into a pair of skis and earn some more scars on the slopes (see below for the 2019 trip’s damage) 😈 She’s a professional party animal, risk taker and all-round good time, and Ella and her social committee are determined to make 2021 THE year for incredible Snowriders events that everyone is welcome to join and create the best memories at!


Ondoua Owona

This year our new treasurer is Ondy and he’s ready to rumble!!
He’s the best of both worlds – always down for a drink (or 10) and a laugh but given his role, knows how to be responsible when the moment demands. He can switch from mate mode to dad faster than a Jerry can stack on a black run 🥴! Ondy is determined to be an ace ✅ 💸 on the financials in 2021 to make sure Snowriders can have cracker events (with decent bar tabs!) and that the New Zealand trip runs smoothly and successfully.
