Pipe

NZ's only Olympic-standard 22ft Superpipe

We have two halfpipes at Cardrona, including NZ's only Olympic-standard 22ft Superpipe... Every year our International & Olympic halfpipes attract pipe jocks big & small from all over the world.

Our pipes are home to both local & FIS World Cup level events every winter – even if you don’t ride pipe, there’s always action to check out in our stunt ditches! Serviced by its very own surface tow (named after Cardrona’s own Wells brothers), the opportunity to lap this all day has pipe jocks frothing!
