Cardrona Alpine Resort
Snow sports paradise high above the township
One of the country’s most popular winter sports resorts, Cardrona is particularly popular with snowboarders with a number of half-pipes. Wanaka is hometown for some of NZ’s top snowboarders, who have been making waves at the Winter Olympics and on world circuits of late.
Cardrona lies 58km from Queenstown and 34km from Wanaka high above Cardrona township and the Crown Range Rd. Drive yourself or take a daily bus from either resort.
In general, the season runs from June until early October.
In summer, Cardrona Alpine Resort is home to New Zealand’s highest mountain bike park.
