It's been an absolute blast up at Cardrona this week with fresh snow & top ski races... & more of both on the way!
WHAT an epic start to the week we had! Fresh lines for days... it was SO good up here. With more in the forecast, we're so excited about current conditions – you've absolutely got to get up here!
We had a couple of cloudy days but the weather forecast for the weekend is looking sweeeeet. We've got the Oakley crew up tomorrow (Saturday) doing demos of their goggles so make sure you check out their stand!
According to the gurus at SnowsBest.com, the weather for the next couple of days is looking great, with a tickle up of fresh snow on the way for Tuesday & Wednesday. It's gonna be a weekend for sunscreen & dark goggle lenses!
If seeing some of NZ & the world's best skiers racing is your thing, you definitely want to check out all the action up here this week! Tomorrow (Saturday the 4th), racing in the FIS Tech Series continues with the men taking on the course at Tail Race. Then on Sunday the younger racers take over in the Cardrona Junior Interfields.
This coming week we're hosting two more race events – the Special Olympics race & the Dynastar Ski Masters! Ski Masters is a bit different this year, with a teams challenge included for groups of NZSIA ski instructors, & groups of NZ Snow Industry Federation members. It should be an absolute blast to see masters, instructors & industry-types all battling head to head... the action kicks off on August 10th!
The Terrain Park Crew have been smashing it lately! They just did a full rebuild of Lil' Bucks Park, complete with the famous Mons Royale bridge. Big Bucks is fully built now with all three jumps & rail features at the top – it's officially a full slopestyle course!
A capital WATCH THIS SPACE is officially in place for the International Halfpipe... it's getting soooo close now!!
Things to look out for
Don't forget – The Lounge happy hour is from 3.30-4.30 with an epic range of locally brewed cider & lager. At the other end of your day, you can pop into the Workshop, get your board or skis waxed while you have a delicious coffee from Java! Just $25 for both the coffee & a wax... what a deal ;)
We're pretty psyched on a speedy week ahead at Cardrona - make sure you keep an eye on our Snow Report for conditions updates... as it happens, we let you know!
