Those looking for some of the best year-round skiing and riding in the world have yet another destination option with the Rocky Mountain Super Pass+ (RMSP+) which has added Cardrona Alpine Resort in New Zealand. With the purchase of lodging, RMSP+ pass holders now have the opportunity to ski up to seven days at Cardrona and with the preexisting benefit of seven days at Mt. Ruapehu on the countrys northern island, explore the entire length of one of the worlds most exotic destinations.

With the addition of Cardrona, RMSP+ pass holders now have access to five resorts in Colorado; Copper Mountain, Crested Butte, Eldora, Steamboat, and Winter Park Resort; Alyeska Resort in Alaska; and Cardrona and Mt. Ruapehu in New Zealand for a total of eight mountains to experience.

Located in the Central Lakes District on New Zealands south island, Cardrona is just a 50 minute drive from the Queenstown airport, nestled in the heart of New Zealands Southern Alps. Among the countrys largest resorts with over 850 acres of skiable terrain, Cardrona is known for its wide open groomers, which makes it a popular destination for families and freestylers. The resort also has an array of on-mountain apartments, allowing visitors to wake up with the slopes literally at their feet. With winter currently in full-swing in New Zealand, RMSP+ pass holders can take advantage of this added benefit now, wait until next summer, or both.

The southern hemisphere has long been a mecca for snow lovers worldwide and were excited to partner with one of New Zealands premier ski destinations, said Matt Bowers, Intrawest Chief Marketing Officer. Adding Cardrona Alpine Resort gives RMSP+ pass holders the opportunity to experience year-round skiing and riding while enjoying the natural beauty and majestic grandeur of New Zealands south island.

Cardrona pass holders will also have an opportunity to chase snow during their summer with a total of seven days across three of Colorados premier resorts; Steamboat, Winter Park Resort, and Copper Mountain, also with the purchase of lodging.
Were very excited to join the RMSP+ family and welcome their guests from North America and all over the world, said Cardrona Alpine Resort General Manager Bridget Legnavsky. The added bonus for our season pass holders to ski and snowboard in Colorado is an amazing experience we cant wait to share with them.

The RMSP+ is currently on sale for $559 for adults but that price is only guaranteed through September 7. For more information on all the benefits afforded to RMSP+ pass holders or to purchase, please visit www.skicolorado.com.
