Snowfalls Reset Treble Cone Snow Season
SNOWFALLS RESET TREBLE CONE SNOW SEASON
11 August 2014
The South Island’s largest ski area Treble Cone (Wanaka, New Zealand) has received 1.5m of new snow over the last 10 days which has reset what had started as a lean snow season into fantastic winter powder conditions for skiers and snowboarders at Treble Cone.
Following regular snowfalls over the last 10 days, which have seen 1.5m of new snow fall at the top of the Home Basin which is measured at 1760m, and even more new snow fall at the top of the Saddle Basin at 1960m, Treble Cone’s winter has well and truly kicked in.
Guests who’ve travelled both domestically and internationally, including an increasing number of Australian visitors, Wanaka locals, and Treble Cone staff are all ecstatic to see the mountain’s snow offering return to full winter conditions, and visitation surge.
The snow depth at the top of the Saddle Basin, where the majority of Treble Cone’s intermediate and advanced terrain is located is now 270cm deep.
‘Treble Cone has a reputation for some of the South Island’s most reliable natural snow, and best powder, and it’s fantastic to see the mountain once again delivering on that reputation and offering fantastic skiing and snowboarding’ Jackie van der Voort, General Manager.
Following an overnight snowfall of 20cm at the top of the Home Basin, and 25cm of new snow at the top of the Saddle Basin, the mountain is looking great for the coming weeks.
Additionally cold temperatures have created for great snowmaking conditions across the lower Home Basin trails over the last week, ensuring the skiing is top-to-bottom.
There’s more snow in the forecast for Treble Cone over
the next three days.
