Cardrona Staff BEAUTIFUL Carrie Skilton


Lifties are a tough breed! They're not afraid of working in some of the harshest weather conditions or heavy lifting, they're always on top of their game & do it all with a smile. They keep all our lifts running smoothly & safely so we all get to ride as much as possible. Lifties are one of the first on the mountain each day & one of the last to leave, so one of their big perks is getting to ride with nobody else on the mountain!

Cardrona Staff


Our Hosts are often the first point of contact with our guests – greeting them at the bottom of the road to provide important information about the day ahead, or up on the mountain helping guests find their way to Rentals, Ticket Office or their ski or snowboard lessons. Our Hosts team is always prepared to step in & help any department where they're needed, so they're all-round guest service superstars! The Hosts team also includes Cardrona's mascots, Pengi & Frosty.

Our Rentals & Workshop teams look after all our guests looking to hire ski or snowboard equipment, or look after the gear they already have.

The Events crew work hard & play hard – they're a tight knit crew often called "Events Ninjas" due to their all-black uniform!
