There are just over 2 weeks left of the 2018 Cardrona winter season, & it's time to say goodbye to Valley View...
After another wicked season down at Valley View, it's time to bid adieu to the lift & Little Meg café for another season. We've had some epic times down there this year, & can't wait till it has another lower mountain partner in crime with Pringles for 2019...
We've had an awesome week up here for the Snow Sports NZ Junior Freestyle Nationals – congratulations to all the kids who took home national titles this week, especially to the members of the Cardrona Junior Team & everyone who has trained with us in the Cardrona Parks Squad & Cardrona Alpine Ski Team this winter. We're so proud of what you've achieved this winter!
Looking at the week ahead, we've got a classic spring week coming our way. According to the team at Snow-Forecast.com, we're in for a mostly sunny week with a completely random 15cm dump forecast for Wednesday afternoon/evening...
Don't forget - next Sunday is the annual Fun Never Stops ski/snowboard/mountain bike race! You can make your way down the mountain by yourself or as a team through the challenge-based course, all the way down to the Cardrona Valley. You can enter on the day in the Ticket Office, or just come check out the action... it's the most fun event of the winter season at Cardrona!
The parks are in super spring conditions & the North Face Cardrona Park crew are busier than ever keeping conditions sweet for everyone!
The 2018 Park Crew Battle is now live – head to the New Zealand Snowboarding Instagram to show your support for the Cardrona team by liking & commenting on their two photos & one video. Winners are announced on Sunday night!
Things to look out for
The Cardrona Adaptive team are throwing a fundraiser for their awesome volunteers tomorrow (Saturday October 6). Bring along $5 cash & take a lap on McDougall's in a bi-ski with the Cardrona Snow Sports School Adaptive instructors. The money goes to a great cause, & you get to try a new way of experiencing the snow!
With just a couple of weeks to go, make sure you come up to get your Cardrona snow fix before it's too late! Our 2019 season passes are on sale at the 2018 rates in our Price Freeze sale – don't miss out on the best rate for a 2019 season pass...
