Riders and Sliders is a 6 session (Sunday) Ski or Snowboard Programme aimed at providing the safest environment for your kids to have fun, progress and explore Treble Cone. 

Each Sunday, your child will ride and slide with the same instuctor and group of local Wanaka friends, based on age and ability. The kids will be encouraged to try new and varied skills which they will be able to take to the bigger mountain, race gates and fun park. Kids will also enjoy theme days including Treble Cone Cat Challenges, off-piste dangers awareness day, race day and much more. Riders and Sliders truly is the perfect children’s programme for the Treble Cone’s local Wanaka mountain kids.

This season we will again offer Riders and Sliders Mini for 3 - 4 year olds. The main focus of this program is to allow kids to have a positive and fun first experience on skis as well as help the ones that already ski make the next step to be ready for Riders and Sliders next year.

Everybody will start in the childcare room where we get organized and then head outside in small groups together with our specifically trained kids instructors.  Children will be divided into different groups from “first time on skis” to kids that can already link turns.

The mini programme will run for 2hrs a day, so that the wee kids don’t get tired and enjoy their time on the snow.
