Fields groomed in run up to season
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.
