Day Lift & Flexi Passes

We have a bunch of different day pass options at Cardrona – from single & half-day passes to the multi-day Flexi Pass, we’ve got you covered! 

Explore 850ha of New Zealand’s best skiing & snowboarding terrain. Whatever your ability, Cardrona has the snow for you! Gentle beginner slopes, terrain parks & halfpipes, wide open groomers or challenging steeps & powder stashes... the choice is yours.

Every multi-day pass (more than 1 day) is valid for use at either Cardrona or Treble Cone with our Flexi Pass. The more you ski, the more you save – plus get massive benefits in Queenstown & Wanaka when you show your Flexi Pass!  

Your lift pass will be stored on an electronic RFID pass. To make the most of your clever pass, activate your personal profile online. Once you’re logged into your profile you can:

  • Top up your card with lift passes, rental gear, lift & rental packages, lessons & more...
  • Keep track of your on-slope stats at Cardrona (days skied, run count, vertical metres covered)

Half Day & 1 Day lift passes are split into Peak & Off Peak pricing: 
Peak - July & August
Off Peak - June, September & October.

Half day passes: 8.30am – 12.30pm morning, 12.30 –4pm afternoon
