3m Snow Depth & New Snow in the Saddle Basin

3m Snow Depth & New Snow in the Saddle Basin

The snow depth in the Saddle Basin at Treble Cone (Wanaka NZ) is currently over 3m deep, which is an amazing amount of snow and has allowed for trails such as Cloud 9 which only get groomed in great snow years to be regularly groomed over the past weeks.

Treble Cone has had brilliant skiing and snowboarding both on and off-piste through the first couple of weeks of August, and looks fantastic for the coming weeks.

Over the last week Treble Cone has received regular snowfalls adding up to 46cm of new snow fallen in the Saddle Basin, and 25cm of new snow in the Home Basin.

More snowfalls are forecast for tonight and Friday morning.

This Saturday Treble Cone hosts the Export 33 Banked Slalom public entry snowboard event, offering a massive $1000 cash to each of the fastest male and fastest female, and with the amount of snow available the course and spectacle promise to fantastic.
