CardronaAlpine Resort lies off the Crown Range road between Wanaka and Queenstown. Shuttle bus services operate from both towns, so it is accessible wherever you choose to base yourself. Although this may not be in the super league of big resorts, the humble offerings here are never the less acceptable and will appeal to all levels and style of rider. If you are moved by the steep and deep then you won't be disappointed with such areas known as Powder Keg and Arcadia Chutes reached off the Whitestar Express Quad.
