This week’s ski report is all about the kids!
We’ve had a really fun week at Cardrona, with our smallest skiers & snowboarders showing us what it really means to enjoy your time on the slopes! We also launched our brand new tubing product this week - check it all out on our Beginners' Area!
The Upper Clutha Primary Schools Race took place on Tuesday, with over 100 kids taking part in both slalom & skier/boarder-cross races. The battle for top teams of the day was won by Holy Family for Primary Ski Team, Wanaka Primary for Primary Snowboard Team, & Mount Aspiring College for both Intermediate teams. We’re so stoked to see so many local kids out there ripping – see you all these school holidays for some spring fun!
Looking at the week ahead, the Mountainwatch ski report suggests another mixed bag week with some epic bluebird day, & potentially a couple of light showers here & there. You never know – one of those showers could turn into a wee spring snow storm! Keep an eye on our daily snow report to make sure you’re bringing the right layers!

Celebrate the season that’s been & the start of mountain bike season with a snow to dirt adventure on Closing Day, October 9! Take the last ride on McDougall’s Quad before it gets replaced with our sweeeet new Chondola, ski or snowboard down the mountain to your bike & ride down to the Cardrona Valley floor!
