Winter 2015 will go down in history as being the longest and the snowiest in many a year! Not only did we open with EPIC snow conditions and base, we opened a week earlier than usual. Just one week into the season, on the 19th of June, we experienced ‘Big Friday’ with over a metre of fresh powder. And the snow kept coming throughout the season – over three metres in total!
The season has been full of incredible events highlights – from hosting The North Face Freeski Open of NZ, to showcasing freestyle skiing and snowboarding on a world stage at the Audi quattro Winter Games NZ, and just this week seeing our up and comers shine at the Cardrona NZ Junior Ski and Snowboard Nationals! We’ve had a fantastic season on the slopes and in the Cardrona Parks, and we can’t wait to celebrate with one last weekend of fun!
With the amazing snow coverage, spring conditions have been superb and it seems like this season could just go on for ever! But sadly, all good things must come to an end and on Sunday, 11th of October we are sending off this longest-ever season. Come and celebrate Closing Day with us – we’re having a HUGE party!
To celebrate the end of this amazing winter, we are offering ½ price lift tickets for anyone with a 2015 Season Pass from any other New Zealand mountain. The offer is valid for all of Closing Weekend! Just show your season pass to ticketing staff to claim this offer.
Put your best dress-ups on and stroll the catwalk for ‘Fashion in the Field’. LOADS of prizes are up for grabs, including prizes for the best individual and team outfits. Live music will be pumping all of Closing Weekend and it will be FUN guaranteed!
So get dressed up and get ready for an EPIC closing weekend at Cardrona, and let’s see off Winter 2015 with a bang!
