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 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!  

Pick up your tubing passes from the Ticket Office – tubing runs on the hour for hour-long sessions. At this stage there are 10 tubes per hour, so book in quick!

Tubing for 2017 will be running from the July school holidays onwards. Watch this space for more details!

Tubing is subject to snow 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!
