Treble Cone sits at the heart of the Southern Lakes district of New Zealand’s South Island.
“As far as the Southern Hemisphere is concerned, you know, this is about as good as it gets. It’s got a bit… bit over 800m of vertical in it. It’s got about 550 hectares of patrolled terrain. It’s got unpatrolled backcountry access for at least you know another 1000 hectares, after that depending on how energetic you are.”
Treble Cone is massive with a large range of shoots, bowls, natural half pipes and a permanent terrain park. The mountain also provides great runs for beginners. And all enjoy the freedom to move on un-crowded slopes.
“A lot of the ski-fields are running like 50% over their terrain capacity. We are running at about a third of our terrain capacity. And you know we… we have got a commitment to that.”
“I have been skiing here for 9 years now. I am still finding new runs, you know. It’s great place to be. I love it.”
When we have a powder storm here, everybody jumps in their car and comes to treble cone to have their day of free riding.”
So, if you are planning a winter holiday to New Zealand, make sure you come to Treble Cone.
