2021 – Big Air Showcase
Cardrona Alpine Resort will host the Big Air showcase on the first weekend of September in the world-renowned Big Bucks Park. The Big Air showcase will see Freeskiers and Snowboarders hit Jump 3 multiple times to perform their best tricks for the judges and spectators alike. The competition format is being co-designed with athletes to ensure they can showcase their incredible talent.

New Zealand snowboarding star, Olympic Bronze medalist in Big Air and 2021 FIS Slopestyle World Champion, Zoi Sadowski-Synnott is stoked to see the event on the calendar and will be bringing her A Game to the Cardrona slopes.

The Big Air event will draw the crowds up to watch the kiwi snow sports stars light up the jump and the Winter Games NZ team will not only be hosting the event, but the party atmosphere will make it a day to remember.

In light of the nationwide lockdown and ongoing uncertainty around Covid alert levels Winter Games NZ 2021 has been cancelled.
