Weather Forecast

Plan your trip to Cardrona for your New Zealand holiday with detailed weather forecasts from our meteorologist friends.

Thanks to our high elevation & south-facing location, Cardrona is known for its reliable snow, even in light snow years. Protected from the north-west winds, Cardrona regulalry experiences good weather across the winter season. If you’d like to see when snow or sun is in the forecast, then check out some of our favourite weather forecast sites below. Our meteorologist friends don’t always agree, so we suggest you look at a couple of sites to get the best picture.

Metservice NZ - A 5 or 10-day mountain forecast from our National Metservice

Snow-forecast.com - Our favourite international experts

Bureau of Meteorology - South Tasman satellite image

Mountainwatch.com - Our buddies in Australia with very cool synoptic charts to show what’s coming from across the ditch

Metvuw.com - Satellite imagery of approaching weather systems for all of NZ

NZ Mountain Safety Council - For the latest backcountry avalanche advisory

Don’t always believe the forecast! Sometimes Mother Nature likes to play tricks on meteorologists, so we always recommend checking out our webcams the morning of your visit. Our Resort Report features up-to-date information on conditions & facilities – it’s updated daily from 6am in winter, & 8am in summer!
