First day at Treble Cone, New Zealand!

10th July 2020

The girls were very excited to head up to Treble Cone for the first time. We made it to the base in time to see the sunrise and to have a little breakfast before hitting the slopes. Our girls 'tested' the hot chocolate from the 'Bar' and gave it their seal of approval.

We headed straight up the 'Home Basin Express' chair for a warmup run on the 'Easy Rider', then back up and over to the 'Saddle Basin', which was looking very nice under a bright blue sky! We all had a great day skiing and the girls now love TC!


Snow day at Cardrona, New Zealand!

6th July 2020

We were all excited to have a snow day up at Cardrona, on the first day of the school holidays! We got up the mountain before the lifts opened and were greeted with heavy snowing. The girls had a great time playing in the snow, with snow ball fights and snowman making.

The visibility wasn't great but we had fun and still got a few runs in, as well as a warm-up and a hot chocolate in 'The Lounge', and then more playing out in the snow!


First family day skiing at Cardrona, New Zealand!

27th June 2020

On the second day of the season, we headed up early for our first day skiing as a family. We arrived up top in time for a spectacular sunrise before the lifts opened. The great weather continued with perfect visibility for the rest of the day.

The girls were happy to be skiing again, and it didn't take long to get their ski-legs back. Not all the mountain was open but there was enough snow around to have some fun, and with perfectly groomed runs a great day skiing was had by all. The girls were also excited to catch up with some of the local characters, a chat with Carol and, a high five and photo with Pengi.


Opening day, Cardrona, New Zealand!

26th June 2020

What a great opening day at Cardrona! There was blue skies and enough snow to open a few runs to have a bit of fun! It was great to get back on the skis!

There was an atmosphere of excitement in the air as a decent size crowd witnessed the official opening of the season, some performances by the local school children, and an 'impromptu' speech by the prime minister of New Zealand, Jacinda Ardern .
