Park and pipe ski­ing in... CARDRONA, NEW ZEALAND

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Body and Soul - - SNOW SPECIAL -

Thanks to its prime po­si­tion in the heart of the South­ern Alps on NZ’s South Is­land, the Cardrona alpine vil­lage (cardrona.com) has one of the most re­li­able snow sea­sons in New Zealand and three epic basins to con­quer. Test your ski legs on the ded­i­cated begin­ner slopes or chal­lenge your­self on the ter­rain parks and half­pipes. With some of the most ex­ten­sive snows­ports fa­cil­i­ties in the South­ern Hemi­sphere, Cardrona caters to all lev­els of rid­ers. Get there: Cardrona is an hour’s drive from Queen­stown or 30 min­utes from Wanaka. If you’re fly­ing to Queen­stown, book a direct trans­fer with Go Or­ange (goor­ange.co.nz). Base your­self: Stay at the rus­tic and charm­ing Cardrona Ho­tel ( cardron­a­ho­tel.co.nz) or get closer to the lifts with a bit of lux­ury at Cardrona On-Moun­tain Ac­com­mo­da­tion ( cardrona.com).
