Here at Cardrona, we offer world-class facilities for elite ski & snowboard training & competition.

Over the past 20 years, Cardrona has led the way for New Zealand ski resorts in offering training facilities for local & international athletes to train. Our facilities are designed, built & maintained by a highly-skilled team. Some are available to hire for private training.


Cardrona has two halfpipes – the original International Halfpipe at 12-14ft, & the Olympic Superpipe at 22ft. For the first time in 2019, we're offering early morning sessions in addition to the public sessions, to make sure athletes can make the most out of their training time.

Ski Race Lanes

We offer race lane hire from early morning onwards on both homologated & non-homologated piste for international ski race teams.


Our World Cup slopestyle course, Big Bucks, is generally open to the public from late June/early July each season.

Big Air

The 75+ft Cardrona Big Air jump is usually constructed by early August (as snow conditions allow), in time for major events like the Winter Games NZ.


We hold Gravity-X events throughout the season here at Cardrona, & the course is maintained by the grooming, Parks & GoldX Events teams.
