Pipelines Ski Report October 6, 2017

We're heading into the last full week of Winter 2017 in our final Pipelines for the season!

Winter 2017 is almost at an end but there's still a lot of fun to be had before we say goodbye... with a week jam packed full of fun in the Spring sun. This Pipelines has all you need to know for Closing Weekend on October 14 & 15 – we've got a lot planned, you won't want to miss it.

We're also reflecting on a season that's had it all – epic powder days, the Southern Hemisphere's biggest freestyle events, competitions for young & old alike, & super fun slush laps this Spring. We've been so lucky to share Winter 2017 with all of you, so thank you so much for being a part of another amazing season!!

We've come a long way since Opening Day... this amazing performance by the MAC Kapa Haka group was one of our highlights.

Don't forget – we're also open for SUMMER! We have mountain biking, NZ's only mountain carting, sightseeing, hiking & more, & it all kicks off on December 2. We're open all the way through to April 2, 2018 (Easter Monday) so there's plenty of time to get up & experience Cardrona in summer. Our summer season passes are on sale now... grab one here!

Cardrona NZ Summer
Summer 2017/18 kicks off December 2!


In true Spring style, the last week of the season could see us off with a bit of fresh snow! The team at are predicting a wee dusting over the weekend & possibly more on Tuesday... 


October 14 & 15 is our Closing Weekend... it's our Spring Break! So get ready for great music, a party vibe & even better dress ups... it's going to be a weekend to remember!

  • Saturday the 14th is Pengi & Frosty's birthday party – there will be face painting, activities & of course CAKE!
  • Sunday's Closing Day finishes with the Fun Never Stops, a ski/snowboard & mountain bike adventure that goes from the top of the mountain all the way down to the Cardrona Valley! You can enter as an individual or a team on the day, check out more information here.


Next week we're kicking off Spring Camp for international & local Kiwi freestyle athletes, which unfortunately means the Olympic Superpipe & the Big Air will be CLOSED to public. So make sure you get some minipipe action in this weekend!!

Things to look out for

TUBING IS BACK! These October school holidays Tubing is back in the Beginners' Area – just $25 for an hour's tubing! We're running it from 12-4pm daily so head into the Ticket Office & book your session!


For the final week of the school holidays you can still get our Skiwees & Lowriders Adventure Programmes for just $350 per child! That's four full days of group lessons & lunch with the same group & the same instructor... it's a pretty sweet deal for four days of ski-dom ;)

This is it – the last full week of Winter 2017! Make sure you get on up here & get some final turns in before you hang up your ski gear for a few months... come celebrate another amazing season with us!
