Watch: Cardrona ski crew waste no time in making the most of surprise summer snowfall

What do you do when you wake up in the middle of January to 30cm of snow outside?

Go out and shred the gnar, of course. 

That's exactly what the crew at the Cardrona Alpine Resort did.

Video sent to 1 NEWS NOW shows Matt McIvor and Davey McIlrath taking on the drifts in their snowboard and mountain bike, with varying degrees of success. 

Mr Davey gets ready to go down the slope on his mountain bike, only to have a spill down the side.

Luckily, his fall is broken by a thick blanket of snow.
