Cardrona's Pre-Season Teaser!

It's time to get out your skis & snowboards... we're OPEN this weekend!!

To celebrate a MEGA snow base, we're opening for skiing & snowboarding this coming weekend (July 2 & 3) in a pre-season teaser before official Opening Day... wait, WHAT?!

We just reckon this is too good not to share, so we want you all to come up & get your fix before we finish getting ready for our June 16 Opening Day. We're frothing to get out skiing & snowboarding, & we KNOW you guys are, so let's get out there this weekend!

Okay, we're officially frothing...

Last week we had over 90cm of natural snow, & the legendary snowmaking team made heeeeeaps of snow on top of that. The snowfall from last week was the latest in a string of storms this year, with large snowfalls on the mountain every month in 2018 (except for January).

The McDougall’s Chondola, the Beginners’ Area & The Lounge will be open from 8.30am through till 4pm both weekend days!! Lessons & on-mountain rentals will also be available. 

After the weekend’s skiing & snowboarding, we'll keep preparing for our official Opening Day on June 16. We've still got a lot to do, including finishing the Base Café & Mezz renovations, & staff training for over 600 staff who get here on June 11.

Looking down to Whitestar... WOW!

If you've got a 2018 season pass, the best thing to do will be to pick up your RFID cards from the Wanaka or Queenstown offices before Saturday. You can grab a day pass in advance from 20 Helwick St, Wanaka & 37 Camp St, Queenstown, as well as on the mountain on Saturday & Sunday.

If you need to get up here from Queenstown, give the team from Go Orange a bell. 

Yup, it's happening! We'll see you all up here on the weekend! YEWWWWWWWW!!
