Scenic Chairlift Ride
Queenstown & Wanaka's only Scenic Chairlift Ride Snow Experience
Head up Treble Cone's Home Basin Express chairlift for a unique, on-snow experience in the comfort of your own sensible outdoor shoes and NEW for 2017, you will be given snow grip overshoes and poles to help keep you from slipping around. Remember no high heels on this ride!
On your way up, relax as you get transported above the action, taking in the bird’s eye view of the learners slope, filled with skiers and snowboarders. At the offload station, located a whopping 1750m above sea level, step off from the chairlift as it slows down for a smooth landing.
As you find your feet on snow, start the short stroll over to the Matukituki view point which provides the best vantage point to take in the breath-taking contrast between jagged peaks and the majestic valley floor. On your way back, stop off at the new on-mountain cafe offering what can only be called, the most picturesque platform for an expresso coffee or lunch, overlooking tranquil Lake Wanaka and the Southern Alps.
Why not make a day of it! Treble Cone has a special package providing you with a return ride from Wanaka or Queenstown to the mountain on the Treble Cone Express Shuttles, as you then enjoy the sights at a height on the Scenic Chairlift ride and when you have made it to the top, enjoy a slice of pizza and a hot beverage and relish in the mountain atmosphere at Altitude Expresso and Pizzeria.
In your own time, head back to the lift station for your final ride back down to earth.
