Summer Weekly Report - December 15, 2017

It's just over a week to go till Christmas! This week's report has a couple of gift ideas if you've left it to the last minute...

We're very excited – it's almost time to hang up your Christmas stockings in preparation for the big guy! We're open right through the Christmas break apart from Christmas Day itself, so if you're in the area these holidays make sure you pop up for a gondola ride, a day on the mountain bike trails, or a mountain carting session. 

This last week has been a great one on the mountain – it's been a little bit cooler than last week, but plenty of sunshine laps on the Chondola were had by everyone up here. As we head into the holiday period it's best to book your mountain bike rental & mountain carting session in advance – book online here.

It's been an absolute beauty couple of days - take a gondola ride to the top of McDougall's for views like this!

Weather Forecast

The good folks over at Metservice are forecasting a bit of rain this Sunday, clearing in time for Monday – will be some great riding next week! Towards the end of next week could be the most settled weather... bring on TGIF next Friday night!

Deals & Christmas Gift Ideas

Speaking of TGIF... every Friday we're open till 8pm & you can score yourself a burger & beer for just $16! It's the best way to wrap up a work week for sure!

Winter addicts – we've just announced the 4 & 6 day Multi Pass Earlybird deal... it's a pretty sweet deal where adults ski for just $69 a day! Give the gift of shred (& save on postage!) this Christmas!

If you're in Wanaka & you haven't finished your shopping yet, pop into Cardrona Corner on Helwick St. There are a bunch of great gifts for the whole family, including Cardrona merchandise, luggage, homeware & more!

Psst... we're also selling Cardrona gift vouchers online now! Grab one here.


The Powerade Dirtstar Downhill kicks off tomorrow!! It's the final of the Downhill Southern Series & it's sure to be a great day out for both competitors & spectators. The weather's looking pretty good for it so come on up & get involved! If you want to race you can either do it on the day or online here. 

The countdown to Christmas is on! Hope you're all ready for the big one... & make sure you come up to see us these holidays!
