Welcome to our playground, AKA, The Big One.
For winter riding we best begin by recommending that you can already ride chairlift blue runs. As that is where Craigieburn starts - just without the chairlift. The towrope with a nutcracker and belt can be off-putting for even the gnarliest goofy rider. But it really shouldn’t. So long as you already know how to slide-well on snow we’ll help you get up and running.
The cosy slopeside accommodation is the seasonal home to a community of snow addicts from all over the globe who collectively share their stories over dinner after a day on the hill. Craigieburn is a non-profit, charitable organisation run by enthusiastic club members and even more dedicated seasonal staff. It exists solely for the purpose of skiing and snowboarding, not for commercial gain. We ask that you refrain from visiting our skifield, accomodation or bar at the valley if you have Covid-19, are awaiting test results or you are experiencing Covid-19 symptoms. Guests should comply with any applicable isolation requirements found here: https://covid19.govt.nz/isolation-and-care
Please note that there are NO ski-hire facilities on the mountain.
