Winter is here! The wait for the new season is over.
Treble Cone Ski Area will open for the 2017 season on Wednesday, July 5.
This weekend the wintery weather enabled the hardworking Snow Makers to complement the natural snow fall from the weekend, which ensures that Treble Cone Ski Area will open Saddle Basin, Home Basin, Nice ‘n’ Easy Platter and the Magic Carpet.
The persistent warm weather and has made things difficult, but our snowmaking team has done an amazing job coupled with the fresh natural snow over the weekend has ensured we will open Wednesday.
Six Seater will run from 9.00am until 4.00pm on Wednesday and will offer skiers and riders access to Platter, Magic Carpet, and the Saddle and Home Basin for those keen to warm up their ski legs. Guests can expect a base of; 55 cm at the Top of the Quad (1960m); 40 cm at the Top of the 6 (1750m) and 6 cm at Base (1260m).
Opening day will be toasted with a free glass of Amisfield Bubbles held in the Plaza at 11:30am!
Everyone up at TC is really enthusiastic about opening on Wednesday. There is a definite excitement in the air, since that storm that came through. This week will see everything else jump into gear - Snow Sports School, Rentals, and On-Mountain Cafes and Retail Shop will all be open.
The new express bus from Queenstown iSite will also ensure our motivated neighbours can be at Treble Cone just after 9am. Our existing Wanaka Service will continue with an 8am and 10am Wanaka to Treble Cone Express Service and the option to return at either 2pm or 4pm.
The Snow Sports School will be open with instructors ready to go.
