Cardrona What's On: Sunny End to July

We've sounded a bit like a broken record this week, but it's been sun, sun and more sun up here to finish off July!!

It's been a week of us posting pretty much the same report every day on our Facebook Snow Reports group ("It's sunny up here today with no wind"), so we've had a great few days of fun laps in the sunshine! There is a weather change heading our way early next week, so check out the forecast below for an update.

Our local kids' programmes start this weekend – we can't wait to see you all up for Hobbits, Hobblets and The Academy this Sunday!

More stuff you might need to know about for the week ahead can be found below:

Weather Forecast

Here's the weather forecast for the next three days: and a few of their colleagues are calling a bit of a storm early next week with a decent sprinkle overnight on Tuesday... bring on Wednesday! 


Wednesday's Mount Aspiring College Champs was a super fun day, with heeeeaps of young competitors taking on the Gravity X course under McDougall's. It was awesome seeing all the teenagers push themselves to take home bragging rights as school champions!

This coming week's Wanaka Tech Series has been postponed to a later date.

Terrain Parks

We now have all three jumps in Antlers Alley open! There have been some awesome lines going down in Big Bucks too, like this one with Finn Bilous earlier this week:

Things to look out for

This weekend we're giving away a pair of limited-edition (only 300 made!!) Chris Benchetler x Grateful Dead 120 Atomic skis on our Instagram! Just make sure you're following both us and Atomic, then tag a mate who you reckon needs to take these bad boys home – they're a sick ski to shred pow on, and they're also a beautiful work of art.
