TRE­BLE CONE

Go Travel New Zealand - - Wanaka -

Tre­ble Cone (Wanaka NZ) is the South Is­land’s largest ski area, of­fer­ing the long­est ver­ti­cal in the Queen­stown and Wanaka re­gion - a mighty 700 leg-burning me­tres. Tre­ble Cone won ‘New Zealand’s Best Ski Re­sort’ at the World Ski Awards in 2013 and again in 2014. Tre­ble Cone is the clos­est ski area to the pic­turesque alpine town­ship of Wanaka, and only 90 min­utes drive from the boom­ing tourism mecca of Queen­stown, with daily buses from both re­sort towns. New for 2015, is an on-moun­tain open-air cafe at the top of the Home Basin. 1760m above sea level the new cafe is nes­tled in the heart of the ski area ac­tion with spec­tac­u­lar views across Lake Wanaka and the snow-capped South­ern Alps. The ex­ist­ing Tre­ble Cone Base Cafe has had a makeover, of­fer­ing a fresh new dining ex­pe­ri­ence. De­vel­oped with earth­works and snow fenc­ing over the sum­mer, win­ter 2015 sees Tre­ble Cone open­ing two new groomed in­ter­me­di­ate trails in the Sad­dle Basin. Ad­di­tion­ally, Raf­fills Run, Tre­ble Cone's flag­ship in­ter­me­di­ate trail has a new wider, eas­ier en­trance cre­ated to en­sure all vis­i­tors to the Sad­dle Basin have ac­cess to cruis­ing this iconic trail and en­joy­ing the sweep­ing views.
