Workshop & Repairs

Get your gear riding smooooth as, with a visit to the Cardrona Workshop, your one-stop shop for ski and snowboard repairs and services.

Tony and his team of gurus offer some of the most advanced tuning services in New Zealand.

Equipped with a state-of-the-art Crystal Magic Montana Ski Tuning Robot, we have hundreds of customisable patters to choose from for your ride. The possibilities seem endless!

From freeride or park to World Cup-ready gear, the team can tune, repair and service anything you bring in, all in a day’s turnaround.

Or book in for infrared waxing. This process allows maximum wax absorption and retention along the ski/board, resulting in higher quality wax, longer life on the slopes, and faster and healthier gear.

Cardrona Alpine Resort Ski Snowboard Workshop Tony James

Tony James is a guru with over 20yrs of experience at Cardrona alone! So it’s fair to say he knows the mountain, the workshop, and his way around a ski or snowboard like the back of his hand.

After working in Japan, Austria, the USA, and Canada, and mentorship with some of the most well-respected international industry experts, including Ryan McDermott (Mono Cera, USA) & Takeshi Nakahara (Bontak, Japan), Tony has refined his workshop skills.

He has trained the workshop crew to ensure your equipment is in safe, wax-stained hands. But don’t take our word for it - pro riders like Will Jackways have been taking their hardware to Tony for years!
