Pipelines Ski Report August 11, 2017

This week's Pipelines Ski Report is heading to a weekend of everything...

It's been another great week at Cardrona, with a few days of sunshine & some awesome events! This weekend is looking like a real mixed bag – there's some snow forecast for this evening, followed by a clear Saturday morning, a storm coming in Saturday evening, & snow possible throughout Sunday. It's a weekend of absolutely everything!

Weather

After this weekend Snow-Forecast.com are predicting a more settled week, with a few days of blue skies & sunshine. Monday could be the day for freshies...!!

Remember to keep an eye out on our Snow Report each morning to find out exactly what the weather is doing each day – it's updated from 6.30am each day.


Events

On Monday we hosted the Otago Southland Secondary School Champs, with local young up & comers battling it out for the Regional crown. The junior events continue this weekend with the Cardrona Junior Interfields alpine ski racing this Sunday.

On Tuesday we really start to kick into our competition season with the FIS Continental Cup for ski/snowboard Slopestyle & Halfpipe. These events have valuable FIS points up for grabs for Olympic qualification, as well as being a really good warmup for the Audi quattro Winter Games NZ FIS World Cup events held here in just over 2 weeks! Everyone is welcome to watch the Kiwi athletes take on the rest of the world on home turf in all those big competitions.


Parks

It's here – the 22ft Olympic halfpipe opens TOMORROW! The Wells Pipe Platter will run from 8am & the pipe will be open as per previous years; Park Crew will make a call in the morning when closing time will be & let you all know!
