Never been on skis or a snowboard? Make your first day as easy as possible at Cardrona with our First Timer packages for kids & adults!
What You'll Get
With facilities like our Learner Conveyor tunnel, a Beginners’ Area close to our Base, gentle learner runs, a dedicated Kids’ Conveyor, & of course our amazing Snow Sports School, there’s no better place to learn to ski or snowboard!
Cardrona’s First Timer packages are a great introduction to the sport & are the most cost-effective way to learn how to ski or snowboard. Our First Timer lesson packages include Beginners’ Area lift passes, rental equipment & 4.5 hours of lessons. Get yourself an All Inclusive pack to add in our clothing & accessories bundle (jacket, pants, helmet, goggles & gloves). First Timer packages are for people who have NEVER EVER been on snow before.
Your First Timer package includes a single uplift on McDougall's Chondola in the afternoon - get to the top of the mountain on your very first day! Snap that pic for your friends to give them all FOMO & take on our green beginner run back to Base or jump back in a gondola cabin and cruise back in comfort!
