Remember how the Corona Airstream
trailer made its way around the country over summer, bringing beats and beverages to Kiwis on the beaches and at summer ‘hot spots’?
Well now they’ve traded in those ‘hot spots’ for ‘cold spots’.
The Corona Airstream is hitting the road again, this time taking the beautifully restored 1963 Airstream
trailer to popular snow destinations around the North and South Island this August.
Corona will be carving out the slopes quite literally, creating a customised Snow Bar and stage on three popular skifields, with free music performances from local Wanaka act Arma Del Amor
. Each snow bar will have a purpose built snow stage and bar to host the event, with tunes from midday. Check out the timetable here…

12pm – 4pm, Saturday 9th August
TUROA SKIFIELD, NATIONAL PARK with Arma Del Amor
12pm – 4pm, Saturday 16th August

In addition to the snow bars, Corona will host free, one-off performances by Kiwi musicians, including Sola Rosa Sound System

(P Digsss & Sambora from Shapeshifter) and Dan Aux
, at some of the best ski and snowboard locations New Zealand has to offer. Dates below:
