Go South and ski with kiwi experience!

The winter months are approaching down here in New Zealand, and we’re getting pumped as our natural playground gets even more fun and crazy-beautiful with the arrival of SNOW! Majestic mountains become pistes covered in sweet pow-pow and the South Island transforms into a mind blowing wonderland.

Cardrona is the largest and most famous of NZ’s ski fields and truly caters to all ability levels. Extensive wide open trails offer some of NZ’s best snow conditions, groomed to perfection by modern and innovative snow management systems meaning it is literally impossible to have a bad day on this mountain.
