Summer Weekly Report - February 2, 2018

What a wake up this morning! With 5cm of snow overnight we've gone from a heat wave to a winter wonderland...

With 25°+ days up on the mountain in the last week (30°+ in town!), it was a bit of a surprise to wake up to a snowy paradise this morning!

We'll be back up & running tomorrow – the snow hasn't survived the sun today so the trails will be open for your riding pleasure at 10am!

Weather Forecast

The weather for this weekend is looking sweeeeet as! The team at Mountainwatch are predicting a sunny weekend, a bit more precip on Monday/Tuesday, then the sun will be back for later on in the week. 


There's definitely gonna be a bit of hero dirt around for the weekend after the snow's melted off the trails... the newly rebuilt Hi Viz is riding like a dream right now! Check out the GoPro trail preview for it here:

All our other trail previews are below in this handy dandy YouTube playlist!


Next Friday we're kicking off the first of 4 social racing nights – the Racers Edge Fast Fridays! Get a team together or ride solo... bragging rights, beer, & food packs are up for grabs each Friday racing runs!

The Altherm Window Systems NZ Mountain Bike Nationals are right around the corner – they're on at the end of this month! We'll see you all up here on February 24 & 25 to see the best in the country battle it out for their national titles. The Cycling NZ website has all the important information you need for Nationals & the link to register.

After Nationals are done & dusted we'll be full swing into our Gravity Enduro event on March 11!

We'll see you all up here for another wicked week of summer fun at Cardrona!
