First Timer Package vs. Single Lesson or Full Day Lesson Package

A Cardrona First Timer Package includes a Learner Conveyor pass on day 1. This accesses the Cardrona beginners’ slope, Learner Conveyors, & access to McDougall’s Quad after 3pm on day 1, & is therefore suitable for those who have never skied or snowboarded before.

If you have skied or snowboarded for more than 1 day, then access to the entire mountain is the best choice for most people. Choose a Cardrona Single Lesson Package to include 1 x 2hr group lesson daily or a Cardrona Full Day Lesson Package to include 2 x 2hr group lessons per day.

Skiing is like riding a bike. You quickly remember the movements even if you only ever skied once, many years ago. Just because it’s been a while doesn’t mean that you will be an absolute beginner.

Bear in mind that if you can stop & change direction you are far more advanced than someone who has never skied or boarded before.

Remember: This package only includes a pass for the beginners’ area & Learner Conveyor, & McDougall’s Quad after 3pm. You can upgrade your First Timer pass to an all-mountain lift pass after 12.30pm for a fee.
