The Cardrona Games are almost upon us, & we’ve got the ultimate guide to the week right here! Some of the world’s best are heading to Cardrona for a week of freestyle skiing & snowboarding competition.
Every event has valuable FIS points up for grabs for the athletes to qualify for World Cup events & in turn the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea. There are 2 Freeski Slopestyle events to maximise FIS point opportunities. You can guarantee to see some top-level skiing & snowboarding – you won’t want to miss this one!!
If you’re heading up to Cardrona to check out all the action, the best viewpoints will be the bottom of the Olympic Halfpipe (which you can walk to if you’d like!) & either Racecourse trail or the bank above Upper Goldrush trail for the Slopestyle events.
