Adaptive Race Programme

The Cardrona Para-Alpine Ski Team full-time programme is for IPC classifiable para-athletes with their sights set on competing in para-alpine ski races from WPAS through to future Paralympic Games.

Programmes

Our Para Race Programme is targeted towards development to elite level para ski racers and is designed to develop and hone the skills needed to be a successful elite level ski racer. 

Cardona has a long history of running para alpine race training. It is the home of the New Zealand Para Alpine Ski Team and has played an integral part of the sucess of Adam Hall (2x Paralympic gold medalist) and Corey Peters (2015 DH & SG World Champion).
