Cardrona Accommodation

Options for Cardrona accommodation include (very limited) on-mountain apartments, Cardrona Village lodging, Wanaka accommodation, or Queenstown accommodation.

Cardrona Accommodation - On-Mountain Cardrona ski field is a rarity amongst commercial New Zealand ski resorts in that it has on-mountain accommodation. Located in the base building, only a minute’s walk from the lifts is a series of apartments with varying bedroom configurations. Considering the convenience of this on-snow accommodation and the limited number of units, this accom is booked out very early.

These units are all self-contained, and considering that there is no grocery store on mountain, and one of the cafes is only open occasionally in the evenings, those staying in these apartments will need to BYO supplies. This Cardrona accommodation is generally suited to families who can make their own nightlife, as driving down the access road at night time to the Cardrona village or to Wanaka is not recommended.

Cardrona Village Accommodation (20 mins drive) On the Crown Range Road at the base of the mountain is the Cardrona Village, which is reminiscent of the days of the gold rush in the 1860s. The village of Cardrona is developing, but currently there isn’t much there except for accommodation and the hotel. The centrepiece of the village is the historical Cardrona Hotel which is popular as an après ski pub. Sometimes there are just a few skiers relaxing by the large open fires, and at other times the place is hopping. The establishment also has a lovely restaurant as well as quality hotel rooms. noindex, nofollow
