Tubing & Sightseeing

You don’t have to be a skier or snowboarder to have a great day on the slopes – check out tubing & sightseeing at Cardrona!  

We know that not everyone who comes on a New Zealand winter holiday is here to ski or snowboard. At Cardrona, we offer different options for our guests who aren’t skiers or snowboarders, or just want to take a break & try something different.

Tubing at Cardrona has finished for Winter 2017

Tubing is great fun for the whole family – & the best thing is that you don’t have to be a skier or snowboarder to give it a go!  

Tubing for Spring will be running within easy walking distance from Base on our Beginners' Area, accessed either by walking or the covered Learner Conveyor. Pick up your tubing passes from the Ticket Office – tubing runs on the hour for hour-long sessions. There are 10 tubing spots per hour, so book in quick! Tubing is $25 per person for an hour-long session.

If your kids are 1m or taller, they must ride in their own tube. Littler kids can ride with an adult (you only pay for the adult). 

Tubing is subject to snow & weather conditions. Please give us a call to confirm tubing is running before you head up the mountain.


Our brand new McDougall’s Express Chondola is the perfect way to see the mountain by foot. We have 10 gondola cabins on the new 'combined' lift of gondola cabins & chairs, to get you headed to the top of the mountain in comfort & style!  

The McDougall’s Express Chondola starts right beside our Base area, so you don’t have to trek for miles through the snow to get to the lift, & in under 4mins you’ll be at the top of the mountain. Admire the views, take as many photos for the family album as you want before you head back down in the Chondola to the Base for a hot chocolate & maybe even the good ol’ Kiwi classic fush n’ chups!
