It’s been fun in the early-season conditions up at Cardrona for our 2nd week of skiing & snowboarding!
We’ve had some pretty warm weather but the grooming & terrain team have done an amazing job of keeping all the upper mountain lifts & trails in good shape!
All the beginner skiers & snowboarders have been making use of our awesome see-through conveyor tunnel! We’ve even seen some sneaky intermediate & advanced riders taking a lap through just because it’s SO cool! We also opened Antlers Alley in the terrain parks last weekend – the riders have been pulling some siiiick tricks on the intermediate jump line!
The good news is – there’s a snow on the way! Metservice’s ski report for Cardrona is forecasting snow for Sunday/Monday, with temperatures staying low throughout next week. We’re doing our snow dances – make sure you’re having a wee boogie too!
We have a volunteer! Actually – 65 of them! Keep an eye out this weekend for our amazing team of 65 adaptive programme volunteers doing their annual training. These dedicated folks give up their own time to assist our guests with a range of disabilities learn to ski or snowboard. This weekend they’ll be getting out & about with a bunch of adaptive equipment so give them a high five if you see them around!
Our Events crew are also on the hunt for a team of volunteers for top-level ski & snowboard events. If you’re keen to get amongst the action, featuring the top skiers & snowboarders from both NZ & overseas, come along to the information evening on July 6. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
This coming Friday the NZSIF are hosting their annual demo day at Cardrona! If you’re on the hunt for some new gear, make sure you check out the on-snow tents to try before you buy! These guys are also the best to chat to if you need any advice on what gear is best for your type/level of skiing or snowboarding, so stop & have a yarn on your way out to the lifts!
Our High Performance programmes for freestyle & race begins this week – keep an eye out for the future of NZ skiing & snowboarding out on the Cardrona slopes each week! These kids are absolute rippers – you’ll find them in the parks, pipes & in race courses throughout the season with their dedicated coaching team. There are still spaces left in our HPC programmes, including the School Holiday camps – email email@example.com for more info.
It’s set to be an action-packed week up at Cardrona! Come up & get some before the school holidays kick in… yewww!
