Park Crew

A lot of work goes behind building, shaping & maintaining the Southern Hemisphere's most extensive park & pipe facilities. Meet the crew behind it all. 

The North Face Cardrona Parks Crew work day & night to give you a variety of terrain park & pipe features for all levels of skiers & snowboarders. From a massive 85ft Big Air & 22ft Superpipe to ride-on boxes & entry-level freestyle features... they are dedicated to providing safe & progressive parks & pipes for you to enjoy. 

The Cardrona Parks Crew come from around the globe & have countless seasons of experience & knowledge. The Cardrona Parks crew includes builders that have constructed Big Air, Slopestyle & Halfpipe courses for some of the world's most elite events, including the Winter Olympics. 

Sponsored by The North Face & Dragon Alliance, the Cardrona Parks Crew are a talented & hard-working bunch that just want to see you progress & have fun lapping the parks & pipes.
