Investment into Snowmaking for Treble Cone

21 March 2017


LAKE WANAKA, New Zealand – Treble Cone is proud to announce that a new snowmaking system will be in place for the 2017 season. The new hardware and controls are designed to enable Treble Cone to open on schedule even in seasons – such as 2016 – with minimal natural snowfall. The newly-installed pipes, pumps and snow guns will service Easy Rider from the top of Home Basin all the way down to the base lodge, as well as providing security around snow cover for Main Street.

This will be new terrain for snow making at TC and will be a turnkey system provided by internationally renowned SMI and will be finished and operational by the start of the season.

Jackie van der Voort, CEO of Treble Cone, commented, “This is a project many years in the making. We want to ensure that our customers are able to ski at Treble Cone from opening day, through the school holidays, and into the heart of the season. This extensive investment in new equipment should enable skiers and boarders to enjoy the mountain from top to bottom. We are looking forward to working with SMI, a leader in snowmaking, whose systems are in place at many of the world’s best-known resorts.”

Treble Cone’s Board and Management team have used the 2016/17 off-season to identify key improvements to the ski field, both on-snow and off. These improvements will improve customer experience for all levels of skiers and boarders, including beginners and young families. Treble Cone Management looks forward to issuing further updates as opening day of the 2017 season approaches.
