Transport & Lift Passes

There’s something at Cardrona for all snow lovers; beginners, intermediates and families will be in paradise thanks to an abundance of wide open trails spread across three bowls, giving you plenty to explore.

Choose to test your skills or check out other riders going big in the most extensive terrain park in the Southern Hemisphere. There are four terrain parks to cater to every level of skier or boarder.

Come and visit us in the heart of the Southern Lakes district, between Wanaka and Queenstown. Cardrona is one of the highest ski areas in the region, with some of New Zealand’s best snow conditions, serviced by four quad chairlifts. This means that some of the most awesome terrain in the South Island is easily accessible, making for a great on-mountain experience.
