What's New for Winter 2018

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.

We're flipping excited about next winter already... can you tell?!

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!!

Remember this legend? The old McD's Quad is still hanging out...

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!
