Visitor Reviews of Cardrona

Phil from Australia writes:

Just returned from Cardrona and the other southern resorts. Cardrona has nailed a niche for terrain parks, well done. I really enjoy skiing at Cardrona with my family but it was super noticable this year that the crowds have grown over the years to a point that it's worse than OZ and other facilities haven't kept up. Same at the other resorts. Not even a seat outside to sit and have lunch beyond the same ones that were there 10-15 years ago. Someone in New Zealand has to step up and lift the experience to world class otherwise the world will go elsewhere as we did the past two years to Chile; it's totally affordable and better value for money.
