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! 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...

The Rebels Who Struck Gold

The early days of New Zealand snowboarding (when snowboarding was banned at Cardrona) are testament to the fact that sometimes you need to kick up a storm to make something happen.
