Lady shred Cardrona for breast cancer with Olympic medalists

Calling all female skiers and boarders of every age and ability ready to rock the slopes of Cardrona in New Zealand in support of breast cancer research.

Ngā Wāhine ō te Maunga “Women of the Mountain” is a girls day out on Saturday September 29, 2018. It’s relaxed, laid back and fun with participants learning tips on any style of riding from female Cardrona Instructors in the morning and some of New Zealand’s best female pro skiers and boarders in the afternoon.

It costs $20 for the day (lift passes not included) with all proceeds going to Boarding for Breast Cancer.

The Cardrona content team will be out & about getting photos & video footage of all the ladies throughout the day and creating a fun edit for everyone to enjoy. It’s about finding new shred buddies, learning new things, & having a blast on the mountain.

SnowsBest is a proud sponsor of the event and the Cardrona crew have got prizes from the legends at GoPro, Dragon Alliance, Pow Gloves, Rojo, & Mons Royale to give away throughout the day.
