The Cardrona Foundation

The Cardrona Foundation

Ko ahau te Maunga, ko te Maunga ko ahau
I am the mountain, & the mountain is me

Skiing and snowboarding in New Zealand form special connections to the mountains, our people, and our future. It's what we love about snow sports.

But did you know that for us, our connection to the place is so special, we’re committed to being kaitiaki (guardians) of the maunga (mountain), always? This is a role we live out every day, and in different ways.

The Cardrona Foundation is our way of rippling goodness, guardianship, protection, and conservation through our community and mountains. And it’s how you, as our guest, enjoy the rewards of nourished community, mountains, and wellbeing.
