The Storm Is Coming - This Weekend Is Going To Be On!

School holidays are sadly nearing the end for all the school kid snow enthusiasts. There have been lots of happy people and great smiles at the Southern Lakes ski areas. The mountains were well covered and the snow was superb for the duration.

Cardrona had record days and did it with ease. Great conditions, all facilities firing and of course the shredding that is on display from the Whitestar Chairlift is worth a trip alone. NZ really has an exceptional amount of talent now in the NZ Snow Industry. Check out Ben Harrington, Volkl rider and Racers Edge supported athlete going big in the park.



Wax your boards (or let us do that for you), load your car and get yourself here. It’s going to be ON! With some of the best freeriding available at TC, it may be time you consider a ski with a bit more width.

A bigger platform provides stability and float, combined these days with rocker profiles for better turn initiation and better maneuverability making the ski more dynamic. Woodcores remain constant for a smoother feel with power in the critical sections of the ski and often laid up with additional titanal or carbon layers or both for a light weight snappy response and much damper ski feel, keeping the edge in contact with the snow when it’s critical for the harder snow days. Huge emphasis this year is on improving the flex lines of skis to give us more harmonic rounder flex, a softer feel whilst retaining the power. Stand out skis this year in the wider waists are, Volkl Mantra, Salomon QST 106, Blizzard Rustler and Atomic Backland 107, and for women the QST Stella and Volkl 90Eight.
