Never been on skis or a snowboard? Make your first day as easy as possible at Cardrona with our First Timer packages for kids & adults!

With facilities like our Learner Conveyor tunnel, a Beginners’ Area close to our Base, gentle learner runs, a dedicated Kids’ Conveyor, & of course our amazing Snow Sports School, there’s no better place to learn to ski or snowboard!

Cardrona’s First Timer packages are a great introduction to the sport & are the most cost-effective way to learn how to ski or snowboard. Our First Timer lesson packages include Beginners’ Area lift passes, rental equipment & lessons. First Timer packages are for people who have NEVER EVER been on snow before.

We have separate Adult & Child First Timer lessons, starting & finishing at the same time. Private lessons are also available for First Timers – please book in advance by emailing lessons@cardrona.com
