Cardrona What's On: Winter's Just Getting Started

All lifts are open as great conditions continue this week across Cardrona and Treble Cone. Read all about it below. 

Willow's chair is now open thanks to the big storm that came through last week! It's not groomed just yet, so the run is recommended for advanced skiing and riding only. Really cold temps and some snow showers have meant lots of snowmaking for our teams and some awesome winter conditions for our guests to get stuck into. Just look at the snowy views right now!

These late winter conditions are shaping Spring to be an awesome season to ski or ride in. Our newest pass, the Spring Flexi 5 day pass is available to buy now. It works the same as our 'regular' Flexi 5 day pass which means it can be used at both Cardrona and Treble Cone, at any time from September 1. It's also valid to use even if the mountain is sold out of day or multi-day passes. Ski from $120/day here. 

Weather Forecast

Today's light cloud will clear to blue skies and sunshine! While the rest of the weekend is looking mild and overcast, we'd recommend dressing with layers but still, packing in sunscreen for potential bursts of sun. The wind should also be relatively calm. Stay updated and open the Snow Report from 6.30 am daily to see what conditions are like.

Treble Cone

TC hosted the annual T-Ski Gnarlom last weekend, well done to all who competed! It was great to host TC's first event of the season.

Both of this weekend's events will be hosted at TC, read below to find out the details. 

Now's a great time to visit NZ's 'most challenging mountain', take some turns and check out one of the best views in New Zealand. If you're coming from Queenstown, consider allowing us to take the wheel. Check out our bus transport options here.


This weekend's events will both be hosted at Treble Cone.

Saturday, August 12, is the TC Mini Mountain, a U16 freeride skiing and snowboarding event happening on a Red or Black graded off-piste slope. Be ready for rocks, bumps and jumps! Read more here. 

Sunday, August 13, we're hosting the Jones Snowboards Banked Slalom. A historic competition in New Zealand snowboarding, be ready for some strong intermediate to advanced boarding, and riding off-piste at TC. All ages welcome! Read more here.

Terrain Parks

With fresh snow, Lil' Bucks is fully open with six jibs and two jumps. Big Bucks is open with more jumps coming!

McPark is getting a slight refresh with a couple of features changed. We've loved seeing you all get amongst the park in the last week. Check it out below:
