Cardrona What's On: NZ Junior Nationals

We're at that time of year again – it's the October school holidays & the SSNZ Freestyle Junior Nationals at Cardrona this coming week!

We've had another mega week up at Cardrona, with almost every kind of weather thrown at us. It snowed most of Monday (with an hour-long break for fresh turns in the morning), the wind decided to say "What's up?!" on Wednesday, & we had blue sky days towards the end of the week!
