Great location. Great day out.

Wicked park! Views are supreme! Lots of snow and a longer season makes this the best ski field in New Zealand.
Went to the Cardrona in winter, fantastic boarding/skiing facilities suited to all levels of ability.
Thank You - to the thousands of travellers that have contributed to our Top Voted NZ Activities Map - it's free from Rankers.
When it's not windy/rainy/cloudy it's ok. Long lift queues, especially during school holidays! Quite dirty facilities (toilets etc). Staff were quite friendly, the instructors didn't seem that knowledgeable unfortunately. Quite flat terrain, there's only really 3 runs and they're boring! Noodle bar is yum. Lots of kickers, rails etc for those baggy-panted people (which there are a lot of).
Overall boring, way preferred other ski fields to Cardrona.
A good day out when the snow is good. Some okay mountain biking in the summer.
First day we tried to go skiing at Cardrona we got to the entrance and the sign said we needed snow chains but there was nobody there to hire/fit them. We drove back to Wanaka and hired some chains and then went back to the Cardrona sales office, where we had been the day before when they had given us no info. Found out then that there is a guy halfway up the hill that hires and fits snow chains. Too windy so we decided to go back next day. Advice for first timers - hire your ski clothes in wanaka as it takes hours to get organised in their hire shop and get through the crowded rush. Hire skis etc at the mountain. I was exhausted by the time we got our family organised. Also see if you can buy lift passes etc in town to beat the crowds.
Good facilities, pricey. Acceptable access and praking.
