Ski Lifts in Cardrona

Cardrona Ski Lifts & Passes

Cardrona’s ski lift system has undergone considerable development in recent years, with the introduction of two new high-speed quad chairlifts as well as a new quad in the Valley View area.

The installation of the Whitestar Express and Captains Express quads significantly improved Cardrona’s lift system, virtually erasing the queuing problems which were previously commonplace at the resort.

Having been made redundant by the construction of the Captains Express, the relocation of the old Captains quad back in 2010 to the Valley View area after a year in storage helped the resort to increase its lift capacity to 10,000 skiers an hour, while also expanding its ski area.

There are now a total of four quad chairs at Cardrona, meaning it has more chairlifts than any other South Island mountain. There are also three magic carpets, giving children and beginners plenty of gentle encouragement.
