Visitor Reviews of Cardrona

Ilona from Australia writes:

Cardrona has always been our favorite ever since our girls were teenagers. We all learned how to ski there. We have also skied overseas in Italy, Dolomites and and it was absolutely spectacular skiing there with the magnificent scenery. Each ski resort or ski field has its own magic and with Cardrona we have always found that the staff, the terrain ,the road the radio blurb is always spot on. Our family is a big fan of Cardrona as all the staff are 100% with looking after this spectacular mountain resort and there is constant improvement to it. Sometimes you have to take in what there is around you and just get on with it you might be surprised with what happens at the end of the day. Well done Cardrona.
