Tre­ble Cone has le­gions of fans and for good rea­son; the ter­rain is world class and the views over Lake Wanaka are mes­meris­ing. This sea­son, there is more be­gin­ner ter­rain and a new snow play area for kids com­plete with slides – just make sure TC Cat doesn’t hog them.

The mod­ern and ef­fi­cient base build­ing makes every­thing sim­ple and the on­line MyPass is easy to load and use. One of the things Coronet is best known for is the night ski­ing, on ev­ery Fri­day and Satur­day night from July to Septem­ber. The learn to ski or board pro­grammes are also world class.
