Central Otago Mirror - - NEWS - By CHE BAKER

The Tre­ble Cone team have an­nounced changes at the ski re­sort in­clud­ing ex­tend­ing the High St trail while rid­ing from the Sad­dle Basin to Home Basin.

The earth­work ex­ten­sions will pro­vide a new align­ment and a longer, wider, gen­tler gra­di­ent to make it eas­ier and more en­joy­able for intermediate skiers and snow­board­ers.

Re­sort mar­ket­ing and sales man­ager Nick No­ble said ‘‘the Sad­dle Basin is home to some of New Zealand’s most re­li­able snow and to some of Tre­ble Cone’s best intermediate trails such as Rafill’s Run, Pete’s Treat and South Ridge.’’

The new trail would be about 400 me­tres long and an aver­age of 10 me­tres wide.

The re­sort will also ex­tend its Jazz Kids Fun Trail adding more mini rollers and jumps to make a longer run for chil­dren.

Two Ger­man made Pis­tenBully 400 groom­ing ma­chines, fit­ted as winch groomers, have also been brought in to al­low groomers to cover more ter­rain.

The re­sort won Best New Zealand Ski Re­sort at the World Ski Awards last year.
