Treble Cone Fresh Lines
How to begin your week:
#1 - a fresh new snowfall.
Monday saw Treble Cone get a fresh new covering of snow to recharge and revitalise the mountain. This new dusting has just added to the excellent conditions, as seen the runs, on and off trail.
For the rest of the week, the mountain was treated with blue skies and sunshine, ideal conditions to work on that goggle tan. The weather could not have been better with no wind, cold temps and no clouds, providing ultimate snow conditions.
The Saddle has that wintry snow up high, continuing to deliver the cold chalky snow spray, with the Home Basin warming up in the afternoons giving us those fun and playful spring time conditions.
WHY TREBLE CONE SNOW SCHOOL IS KLAUS-SIC?
Speaking with Snow Sports Manager, Klaus Mair, about lessons, instructors and most importantly what the Treble Cone Team Snow Sports School has to offer above other mountains. So Klaus tell us about:
"We offer small lesson sizes. There will never be more than 5 in first timer groups and no more than 8 in the adult group lessons. This allows a more intimate feel for the lessons giving a more personal experience with the instructor enabling you to progress in either skiing or snowboarding.”
"We still have two more Sofa Camps to come with spaces available. This is a premium ski improvement camp experience which is a dedicated 5 days with an outstanding instructor to improve your skiing as much possible in a group of max 5 people. On the sixth day, there is an option to go heli skiing with the Harris Mountain heli-skiing company, plus we have a great relationship with Harris so if 4 or more people decide to go, your instructor will also be able to go for free.”
“We can show you all around the mountain - anywhere you would like to go. Any special places on the mountain like the chutes or areas you may not be comfortable to go and do by yourself we can take you there. Plus on busy days, you can get a coach, learn how to ski and board better and cut the line get taken to the best places.”
“We have extremely good instructors from around the world, with a reputation of having a really strong team. We have a lot of people wanting to work at Treble Cone and we pride ourselves on only selecting the best.”
