Cardrona is New Zealand’s most popular ski area, welcoming everyone from first-time skiers and snowboarders, to Olympic and X Games athletes.
Wide, open slopes offer some of the country’s most progressive terrain, and are home to New Zealand’s most extensive terrain parks and halfpipes.
There’s action everywhere you look – Cardrona hosts a massive events calendar every winter, with Snowboxx NZ joining FIS World Cups, wacky races and the Jossi Wells Invitational in a winter to remember. 2020 is Cardrona’s 40th anniversary, so come join the party!
