Day 5: Wanaka | Treble Cone
Hidden in the heart of the Southern Alps, Treble Cone has amazing views across the beautiful lakeside town of Wanaka. It’s also the largest ski area in the South Island with plenty of exhilarating skiing and snowboarding terrain.
Treble Cone boasts New Zealand's fastest quad chairlift, so you can enjoy more runs per day than anywhere else. The saddle quad chairlift offers the highest lift-accessed terrain, longest groomed intermediate runs, and highest vertical drop in the South Island.
From the purpose-built learner area and long groomed intermediate trails, to numerous natural half pipes on the upper mountain, there’s plenty for everyone here.
Treble Cone’s proximity to the Southern Alps means reliable snow conditions and weather, and, just as importantly, it is protected from the bitterly cold southerly winds. Renowned for plenty of dry powder, Treble Cone receives an average annual snowfall of 5.5 metres and has an average maximum snow depth of 3.25 metres.
In the evening, Wanaka is an après-ski haven, with a vast number of places to dine, drink and dance the night away.
