Cardrona and Treble Cone have a long history of providing quality training and facilities to help young snow sports athletes along their competitive pathways.
With world-class coaching, a supportive environment, and a “club” feel to each programme, our HPC has solidified its place on New Zealand’s competitive snow sports pathway. Over the years, our programmes have trained most of New Zealand’s Winter Olympic and X Games ski and snowboard athletes, including the Wells brothers, Zoi Sadowski-Synnott and Nico Porteous. Some of those athletes return as coaches to pass on their skills and experience to the next generation.
The Wanaka Ski Team is the combination of Team TC and Cardrona Alpine Ski Team - with two mountains coming together, we thought it was about time that two of the country's best ski race programmes did too! The Wanaka Ski Team has programmes for junior racers just starting out, all the way through to FIS level athletes, and trains across both mountains when conditions allow.
The Cardrona Parks Squad calls the Southern Hemisphere's most extensive terrain parks and pipes their home. Cardrona is home to four progressive terrain parks for all levels of freestylers, two halfpipes, a big air jump and a gravity-x course. The Cardrona Parks Squad coaches are some of the best in the game and will help athletes on a competition pathway learn new tricks and iron out kinks in their style, all in a safe, fun team environment.
The TC Freeride Team, led by Kiwi Freeride World Tour athlete Sam Lee, trains on some of New Zealand's best freeride terrain at Treble Cone. TC's natural bowls, halfpipes, chutes, cliffs, steeps and side hits make it the ideal training ground for young freeride athletes. Sam and his team will help athletes progress their skiing and mentor them through local freeride competitions.
With two mountains and several different snow sports disciplines, there are many coaching options to choose from within HPC.
