Gravity Cross Events
The Cardrona Gravity X is the home of many events throughout the winter season. Last season saw the inaugural Dakine Banked Slalom in the Gravity X – over 140 snowboarders of all ages took part! At the end of each season over 200 of our youngest athletes take to the Gravity X course as part of the Cardrona NZ Junior Nationals in single timed runs.
International athletes head to Cardrona every spring to race train in the Gravity X as part of Cardrona’s annual Spring Camp.
