Kitzbühel - Summer

The beautiful Kitzbühel mountains are made of these stones rich in natural resources and lined with limestone, slate and in part dolomite. Whatever, it is really the ideal place to get rid of excess energy hence robbing me of my wit in the Newsletter I imagine! Hiking, eating cheese from mountain pastures, cycling, eating bacon and bread, picking flowers, eating "Kaiserschmarrn", being frightened of cows, drinking elderberry juice etc. all help to prevent yours truly from getting into too many embarrassing situations.
Whereby of course from my experience July is always a good month for yours truly to put her proverbial foot in it. There are just too many opportunities to get something wrong: At the Austrian Open Tournament last year, yours truly Julia unintentionally got a bit too close to one of the tennis stars (it is not what you are thinking, I only slipped!!) and flea-bag my four-legged companion, not to be outbeaten, then managed to fall into Lake Schwarz during the triathlon (thereby wetting those proud paws much to the disgust of our dear little friend!!). Then at the Boogie Woogie concert the high heel of my shoe broke leaving yours truly no other option than to hop all the way home on one leg!
BOOGIE WOOGIE & BLUES FESTIVAL When Boogie-Wolf Christoph Steinbach and his high-class musical guests hit the keys and head for the microphones no one can refrain from dancing – not even die-hard anti-dancers! Come and experience the unique atmosphere and fantastic international stars at the Boogie Nights

Cardrona Resort New Zealand
Cardrona Expands Kids Centres

We have expanded our Kids Centre places from 268 to 448 per day. The increase is in the 5-8 years and 8-14 years Kids Centres where new facilities mean more children can now enjoy on and off slope supervision.

The kids can access their own lunchroom, rental, ski storage, inside play area and restrooms as well as specialist children ski development programmes. There are four centres for children from 3 months up to 14 years at Cardrona.

We're now the size of many New Zealand primary schools - though a school where kids learn to ski and snowboard rather than Maths and English!

Cardrona's four day Skiwee programme is based out of the Kids Centres so the places for this popular programme will significantly increase. Skiwees (or its snowboard equivalent, Lowriders) encourages children to have fun and explore the alpine environment with other kids their own age and ability in the safe hands of qualified instructors. It starts every Monday throughout the season and challenges children without making skiing a trial.

Parents can happily ski all day in the knowledge their kids are safe, having fun and rapidly building confidence on their skis or boards.
