Why Work at Treble Cone?

Treble Cone is the closest ski area to Wanaka, and offers the region’s most diverse and challenging terrain. For people new to the sport, we also boast the longest green run, un-crowded groom slopes and discounted / free ski improvement programmes for staff (of all levels).

Our team is comparatively small, creating a very close knit interdepartmental group. Treble Cone organises several team events throughout season, which have in the past included trips to Ohau, night skiing at Coronet Peak and plenty of local Wanaka activities

So why work at Treble Cone….

  • South Island’s largest ski area with the longest vertical in the Southern Lakes
  • Challenging slopes including award winning intermediate to advance terrain
  • Long uncrowded beginner to intermediate trails
  • A small team of passionate skiers and snowboarders
