Special Olympics

Come out to support our NZ Special Olympic Athletes  - with multiple days of racing

Date: August 17 - 18, 2022
Location: Cardrona Alpine Resort

Special Olympics New Zealand have hosted skiing camps and racing at Cardrona for decades and every 4 years host a National Event. The Special Olympic Games is a 5-day festival for local and visiting skiers and snowboarders with intellectual disabilities and physical disabilities. On the final days Cardrona host Giant Slalom and Slalom races in the main basin. All racers are graded then a handicap percentage is used to calculate the race times and podium results. The awards presentation in the courtyard at the end of racing adds a new level of stoke to standing on the podium and is a joy to watch.
