What's New This Season at Cardrona Alpine Resort

NEW IN 2004!
Over $5m has been invested in a new high speed detachable quad chairlift, the Whitestar Express. It will increase capacity by an additional 1,200 skiers per hour and add speed making for more time on the snow. The Whitestar services a mix of intermediate and advanced terrain and is considered by many customers as some of the best at the resort.
