Great Conditions Fuel Cardrona's Early Opening

Great Conditions Fuel Cardrona's Early Opening

posted: 01/01/2000

Cardrona, New Zealand, June 26--Opening on June 23, a day earlier than scheduled, Cardrona Alpine Resort in New Zealand already looks to have an amazing season ahead.

A firm 8-12 inch base at the bottom rises to 39 inches at the summit making for the "best snow cover for any opening in ten years," said Shaun Gilbertson, operations manager. The international half-pipe remains in great condition and claims to be the first open this season.

Renovations over the summer included two new beginner's lifts. The Magic Carpet rides move in full swing and the newly expanded Captain's Café is prepared for the masses of hungry, early season skiers.

The Kid's Ski School is also ready to amuse and teach with a newly expanded staff from six to 10 instructors. Avoid the disappointment of full classes by calling ahead to make a booking (011 64 3 4439806).

Keep checking back with and the snow report link for updated information on the ski season down under.
