School Groups

Cardrona is ideal for school ski trips! Our resort has been accommodating New Zealand school groups for over 2 decades and has everything to keep the students stoked! School groups can score a range of discounts when organising groups of at least 15 students for a trip to Cardrona.

Note: Due to increased pressure on our resources during busy periods, Cardrona offers Peak & Cardrona NZ young skiers playing in the snowSpring Special rates for New Zealand school group visits. During the July school holidays (July 4th – 22nd) we do not accept NZ school group bookings.

Cardrona is perfect for school students of all ages and abilities with loads of lesson options, wide open groomed runs, 5 different cafes, challenging chutes & the Southern Hemisphere’s most extensive terrain park facilities.

New Zealand school groups can take advantage of discounted rates across lift passes, rental equipment & lessons at Cardrona.
