Cardrona What's On: Spring School Holidays

The Spring School Holidays kicked off with a storm and fresh powder, and Treble Cone's closing weekend is coming up. Read about it below!

Kia ora! Welcome to this week's What's On. Last weekend was a little touch and go with the storm, bringing heavy rain and wind, but Thursday evening and Friday brought the snow and we were so happy to wake up to fresh powder! Just in time for the New Zealand school holidays, and it's been awesome to see you and your whānau lapping these great conditions.

It's Treble Cone's closing day this Sunday and the conditions have been awesome building up to it. Come on up for some good times, music, drinks and incredible laps.

Weather Forecast

Tomorrow and Saturday is planning to be in the negative temps, with lows of -5, strong winds and some snowfall too. Sunday looks milder, with lighter winds. If you're planning to head up this weekend, pack your windproof layers!

Stay updated and open the Snow Report from 6.30 am daily to see what conditions are like.

Treble Cone

Treble Cone has had some awesome days and conditions in the last week! Make sure you plan to head up this Sunday to their closing day event. Stay tuned to their socials @trebleconenz for announcements and details of the event closer to the date. 


Today kicks off the NZ Freestyle Nationals, with 2 FIS ANC events for open competitors. This is a chance for juniors to score national titles in all age divisions from U8 – U18. Big Bucks and Big Air will host a slopestyle event over the next 4 days. 

The Nationals are the best way for competitors to learn how to compete at a national level before being considered for New Zealand Teams and progressing towards international competition. Learn more about the event.

Terrain Parks

It's business as usual for the terrain parks crew. We're looking back on the season to the incredible achievements some athlete's have had on some of Cardrona's features. Check out Max Moffatt below at NZ Winter Games a couple of weeks ago.
