Family ski holidays are often the highlight of the year. A week enjoying the primal thrill of gravity-powered descents in a stunning alpine environment gives everyone in the group their own personal highlights to treasure until next year.
From toddlers through to grandparents, a day sliding down the snow gives a feel-good rush of endorphins that makes a holiday memorable for all the right reasons.
Cardrona has a variety of runs, terrain features and family-friendly facilities to ensure everyone is catered for. From smoothly groomed learner runs to easily accessed off-piste steeps, terrain parks and a fenced area dedicated to the youngest members of the party, there is literally something for everyone.
Not skiing? Cardrona has five different cafes to relax in with free wifi in their base area. Warm up with a nice coffee while the rest of the family hit the slopes or indulge in either lamb shanks, hot soup, eggs benedict, asian noodle dishs, gourmet pizza or just a classic kiwi meat pie. The options are endless!
The childcare facilities for the under-fives and all-day kids' programmes means parents and caregivers can take a well-earned break to enjoy their own mountain time. Cardrona's friendly mascots, Frosty and Pengi, are never far from the action too and are always up for a few high-fives and dance moves with the kids!
