Getting from Wanaka to Treble Cone
Treble Cone is the closest ski resort to Wanaka, located a short 29km / 30 minute scenic drive along the tranquil shores of Lake Wanaka. Free mountain parking available at the Base Lodge and at the bottom of the access road. If you're heading up to Treble Cone from Wanaka for one or several days, in addition to driving yourself there are the following transport options;
- The new Treble Cone Express is the best value and most direct shuttle service
- If you're skiing or snowboarding at both Treble Cone and Cardrona on a multi-day Flexi Pass then a multi-day Yello! Transport pass is fantastic
- There are also private transfer options available from Wanaka to Treble Cone
The Treble Cone Express is being continued in 2017 following such a successful season in 2016!
The TC Express Shuttle departs for Treble Cone Town Office (24 Dungarvon Street, Wanaka) at 8am and 10am, calling into Edgewater and Ramada Resort on the way to the mountain. If you are being collected from either of these two hotels, you need to have already purchased your bus ticket and be ready at 8am.
For the return to Wanaka, the TC Express Shuttle leaves the mountain at 2pm and 4pm.
