Treble Cone, Lake Wanaka, New Zealand

Situated 20km from the lake side town of Wanaka, Treble Cone provides a spectacular view of Lake Wanaka.

Lifts include the impressive Express 6 seater detachable chair, 2 two bars, a double chair and platter lifts. The main trail is 2.2 kilometre long (phew!) and wide and offers good slopes for beginners. The half pipe has been rebuilt this summer and is 130 metres long.

On the upper mountain is Saddle Basin which is huge and offers some brilliant advanced options. The positioning of the double chair has to be one of the more curious decisions, it should be swung around 90 degrees and quadrupled in length. Oh well. The short walk to the summit is well worth it, heck, do it a couple of times!

Treble Cone is renowned for its good snow falls and the relentless, unyielding terrain. It seems to fall out of the sky in to the Lake below. Launch yourself in to Gun Barrel and hang on for the ride of your life. Apparently local ski legend Katie Deans has set the world record for the most consecutive turns on Treble Cone!
