School Groups

Cardrona has been accommodating New Zealand school groups for over 2 decades & has everything to keep your students stoked! School groups can score a range of discounts when organising groups of at least 15 students for a trip to Cardrona.

Note: Due to increased pressure on our resources during busy periods, Cardrona offers Peak & Spring Special rates for New Zealand school group visits. During the July School Holidays (July 1–23, 2017), we do not accept NZ school group bookings.

FREE lift passes are on offer to those organising large groups at a ratio of 1:45 (for every 45 students booked the group will receive 1 complimentary lift pass).
