Ski Report August 20, 2016

It has been another amazing week up at Cardrona for this week’s ski report!

The sun’s been out all week, & we’ve all been loving it! Snow conditions are beeeautiful, with chalky on-piste conditions creating some great hero snow to really get your legs pumping!

We’re still frothing over last Saturday – WHAT a day for the inaugural Jossi Wells Invitational Big Air! Huge congratulations again to James Woods, Matty Cox, Spencer O’Brien & Margaux Hackett for taking out top honours in their divisions! MASSIVE thank you to the event sponsors again – we couldn’t have put on such a great event without the incredible Monster Energy, Dragon Alliance, Oxbow Adventures & AJ Hackett Bungy. We can’t wait to do it all next year!

Snow Report

Mountainwatch’s ski report is predicting a few days of snow showers – it’s looking like a little bit more winter before spring kicks in! On that note – Spring Season Passes are on sale NOW until September 4, & are valid from September 5 till we close on October 9! We’re also open till 5pm all through spring – SPRING IT ON!

Billabong Banked Slalom

The Billabong Banked Slalom is on TODAY! We can’t wait to see this community event of snowboarders battling it out down the epic banked slalom course under McDougall’s Quad. Check out all the action from 10.45am for Billabong’s glorious return to the world of snow sports events!!

Win 1 of 16 snowboards!!

We’re giving away 2 Monster Energy snowboards every week for the rest of the 2016 winter season!

Buy 2 cans of Monster Energy at any of our cafés or restaurants, & you’ll get a Monster Energy sticker to put on your gear! Take a photo of you, your gear & your sticker in action at Cardrona, tag us on Instagram @cardronanz or post to our Facebook page & be in to win!

We’ve got 16 Monster Energy APO snowboards to give away – that’s 2 every week for the rest of the season! So get shredding, get snapping & get posting to be the proud owner of a brand new snowboard!!

Onesie Day

Grab your onesie & rock it on August 31 at Cardrona! If you’re out on the snow in a onesie on the 31st you could walk away with an awesome prize! Onesie Day is also part of Gay Ski Week – all are welcome to join guided tours on the 28th, 31st & 3rd, & check out the Snow Bar at the bottom of McDougall’s!

A message from Ski Patrol…

A final message this ski report is from Patrol to ski & ride to the conditions & your ability! The second half of the season is when we all try to achieve our goals for the season – so make sure you play it safe & keep an eye on everyone else too! We’re all having fun when we’re all staying safe! Check out the Snow Responsibility Code here!
