It has been an INCREDIBLE week up at Cardrona! Wednesday night saw a surprise dump of 25cm, with powder hounds getting the goods all day Thursday!
Check out all the MINT turns (& one amazing faceplant) in the video ski report here.
Snow-forecast.com are predicting a few snow flurries over the next 4 or 5 days to keep topping up our great snow base! There could be some heavier falls – after Mother Nature’s surprise this week, you just never quite know what we’re gonna wake up to! Keep an eye on our snow report which is updated throughout the day, with the first report at around 6am, to find out what the snow levels are doing!
We have a brand new, GIANT trail map at the top of Whitestar Express! Look out for the GoPro sign straight ahead of you on the fence by the entrance to Captain’s Basin. One of our friendly mountain hosts will be hanging out there between 11am-2pm daily if you have any questions about Cardrona, or need a point in the right direction for some powder spots or a bite to eat!
MAC Champs & Piki Maunga Rangatahi
This week we held the Mount Aspiring College Championships in both boarder/skier cross & snowboard/ski giant slalom. The kids all zoomed down the mountain for an awesome 2 days of racing!
Due to weather, we had to reschedule Piki Maunga Rangitahi Big Mountain competition – so all the action will take place tomorrow! The event is the first stop on the NZ Youth Freeride series, & is sure to be a spectacle for everyone at Captain’s Pizzeria – the event will be held on Tulips run, right over the café! To enter, download the entry form & send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
