Every winter Cardrona hosts many international level ski & snowboard events including FIS World Cup ski races, slopestyle & halfpipe events.

Each year, hundreds of international athletes come to Cardrona to compete in world-class events like the FIS Tech Series, the NZ Freestyle Open, & the Winter Games NZ.

Ski racing events are held on our homologated courses, Tail Race & Upper Goldrush. Slopestyle events take place on our World Cup slopestyle course, Big Bucks – each year the course is designed, built & maintained by the legendary North Face Cardrona Parks Crew. Cardrona currently has the Southern Hemisphere's only Olympic halfpipe, holding FIS events in the pipe every year.

If you're coming to Cardrona to compete only, you may be entitled to a discounted lift pass for event days. Contact for more information.
