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 success of Adam Hall (2x Paralympic gold medalist) and Corey Peters (2015 DH & SG World Champion).
