Cardrona What's On: Last Week of School Holidays!

We're heading into the last week of the 2019 season – it's time to get those last turns in and join the celebration! 

We've had an absolute blast so far this season, and now we're in the business end... there's just over a week left of Winter 2019 and there's still a lot of fun to be had out there!

Because we're quietening down for the tail end of the season, there are a few things that are having their last hurrah this Sunday:

  • Captain's and Whitestar Express chairs
  • Captain's Café and The Mezz
  • Pine Trees shuttles
  • Shuttles from Queenstown and Wanaka

That means that fun and food continues with:

  • McDougall's Chondola and the Beginners' Area
  • Base Café and The Lounge
  • Tubing and sightseeing
  • Lil' Bucks, Stag Lane and Big Bucks terrain parks

We're excited for a great last week of skiing and snowboarding up here – there's still time to get some turns in, have a slide and join in on all the fun. Check out info on the weather forecast, our Closing Day event and our big season pass sale below and we'll see you up here to see off Winter 2019 in style!

Weather Forecast

Here's the weather forecast for the next three days from

The long-range forecast from the team is calling a mixed week, with some clouds over the weekend and the sun kicking in on Tuesday!


We're in the full swing of Spring Camp at the moment – a training camp in halfpipe and big air for elite athletes. It's pretty rad to see some of the world's best trying new tricks in our backyard!

Closing Day is on Sunday, October 20, and we're celebrating the transition from winter skiing and snowboarding to summer mountain biking with the annual The Fun Never Stops race. It's always a LOT of carnage, so get your entries in (as an individual or a team), or come up to watch all the mayhem!

Terrain Parks

A massive congratulations to our very own The North Face Cardrona Parks Crew for taking home "Best Line" in the New Zealand Snowboarding Park Crew Battle – check out their line below!

A huge shout out the team at New Zealand Snowboarding for putting on this great competition every year, and the legends at Turoa Parks for taking out the overall title for the second year running. It's epic to see how strong the Kiwi terrain park community is!

Things to look out for

Don't forget - you've got until the end of this month to grab a 2020 Season Pass at the 2019 Earlybird rates! Check out all the info on the Price Freeze page and see all the perks that come with a Cardrona Saver or Unlimited season pass. It's our 40th birthday next year, and you're not gonna want to miss out on the party.
