Great family trip

Beautiful views - we’ve been up both with snow and without, both beautiful views and fun for the kids.

Beautiful views on a nice hike

The power was out but yet they still took us to a lift ran by a generator just to keep it going. It was super windy but the views were great .

Looks very nice, but couldn't attend.

Great deal for 1$ only! Unfortunately I couldn't get that day off work. Otherwise would have loved to hike along Cardrona.

Didn’t get to go

Unfortunately it was bad weather so did not get to go, but we did have a coffee in the cafe. We did not get a refund with this.

Great views. Friendly staff. Fab time.

13km or so drive up wide dirt track with plenty of hairpin bends to get to resort. Great views from top, with plenty of activities. Helpful and friendly staff. Great cafe. All around well worth a visit.
