It was another record-breaking winter at Cardrona this year... & we're celebrating by announcing another summer of developments!
Winter 2017 smashed all our visitor records that were set in 2016 – we've been so stoked to see you all out on the mountain, enjoying the new McDougall's Chondola & making the most out of our longer season this year.
Now that our improved lifts & snowmaking can get more of you out skiing & snowboarding out on the mountain for longer, it's time for our Base facilities to do the same.
Our developments in time for Winter 2018 include:
- A refit of both Base & Mezz cafés to accommodate more guests, more efficiently
- Refit of the new Ski Concierge
- Cardrona Corner (Wanaka office) refit including bike & snow rental
- Refurbished staff areas
- A significant increase in snowmaking capabilities, with a focus on the area by the top of the McDougall's Chondola
- Plus more!!
The next two years following we're continuing on this theme, while also looking to cater for more advanced skiers & snowboarders... don't forget that since we replaced the McDougall's Quad with the Chondola, we have a spare chairlift ready to be repurposed!!
Over the next three years we're pumping over $20million into the resort's facilities; we're looking forward to seeing what you all think of the changes! You can grab a 2018 season pass NOW at 2017's Earlybird rates in the Price Freeze sale – get yours before the end of October & we'll see you on the slopes next winter...
