Club membership – we’re all mates (unless it’s a powder day!)

The Craigieburn community having fun.

Join the CV family

Club fields like Craigieburn Valley exist because of our dedicated, long-term members. People like you, who just love the good times and the good feels that come from hanging out in the mountains with likeminded folk.

We love new members! Every year our lifers are joined by a fresh crew of keen skiers and boarders, and that’s what keeps life interesting here.

Everybody can commit at different levels, and we totally get that. We have three levels of membership, so simply choose what works for you.

And in return, you’ll enjoy heavily discounted lift tickets and accommodation, and a bevy of new friends for life.  

Apply here to become a member.

Membership types

We have three levels of membership, social, ordinary and privileged:
social Social members enjoy the social benefits of being involved in the club, and receive the club newsletter. This level of membership is intended for members who wish to keep in contact with the club while not actively participating. No discount for tow passes and accommodation.

ordinary Our standard membership tier, ordinary members receive approximately 25% discounts on tow passes and accommodation, as well as the benefits of a social membership.

privileged Privileged membership is only available to those members who complete a minimum of 2 work parties per year, or our buy out option. Privileged entitles members to a 50% discount on lift tickets and accommodation, and to purchase a season passes.

How it all works.

Membership card

Upon payment of subscriptions, members will be issued with membership cards (early payment of subs will ensure you have your card prior to opening day!)
Bring your membership card every time you come up and present it to the ticket office to receive your discount. If you forget your card, the ticket officer will charge you the full rate, but you can write to the administrator to receive a refund for the difference - email admin@craigieburn.co.nz or post PO Box 2152, Christchurch.
