LEARN TO SKI OR SNOWBOARD PACKAGES
First Timer Package
Included in this package is everything you will need to have a magical first experience on snow. Included is a 2 hour beginner ski or snowboard lesson, lift access to the Nice ‘n’ Easy platter and protected learning area, Ski/Snowboard Rental and a Scenic Chairlift Ride to the top of Treble Cone to see first-hand the various other beginner runs on offer from the safety of your own shoes. To finish the day, we have included a hot beverage from our café to be enjoyed looking out over Lake Wanaka and reflect upon a great first day learning how to ski or snowboard at Treble Cone.
First Timer Accelerate package
The First Timers Accelerate includes everything from the First Timers Package, plus an addition of a second 2 hour ski or snowboard lesson in the afternoon. Perfect for the new skiers or snowboarders with somewhere to be. Or for the skier or snowboarder who wants a little more time within the safety of your instructor’s reach, before practising on your own. Abilities will be re-assessed in the afternoon and assigned to a class accordingly.
Beginner Plus package
Beginner Plus is for day 2 skiers or snowboarders ready to progress to Treble Cone’s signature green run, Easy Rider. Start the day by re-gaining your snow legs on the familiarity of the Nice ‘n’ Easy Platter and dedicated learning area before following your instructor up the Basin Express Chairlift to experience the run of your life. Included in the Beginner Plus Package is a 2hr Lesson, Easy Rider access (Home Basin Express Chairlift) during your lesson and Ski/Board Rental. After your lesson, either upgrade to a full Lift Pass or continue practising your skills on the Free Nice ‘n’ Easy Platter.
