Top international riders will descend upon Cardrona Alpine Resort this winter for a pinnacle event on the international snow sports competition circuit, the FIS Snowboard Halfpipe World Cup from 25-26 August 2012.

With the Winter Olympics less than two years away, the World Cup event will act as the first qualifying event in the world for athletes and will attract a strong field of elites as they start their journey to Sochi 2014.

Watch the riders in action as they take on Cardona’s 22-foot superpipe. Crowds are guaranteed to be entertained by the creative mix of tricks, flips, back-to-back rotations and big air grabs.

Off mountain the Winter Games Adventure Film Festival from the 24-26 August returns to Queenstown. There’s a jam-packed programme of spectacular adventure films, carefully selected to inspire and entertain. Visit the website www.wintergamesnz.com/adventurefilmfest to find out more information.
