Back To Back Powder Days At Treble Cone (27-Aug-09)

Wanaka, New Zealand, August 27, 2009 - Winter is back at Treble Cone

Winter is back at Treble Cone. With 50 cm falling over the past 24 – 36 hours, the base depths continue to grow even as spring approaches. The latest storm’s snowfall helped bring the Saddle Basin’s total base depths up to 2 meters and there is more snow in the forecast. 

“We have had an incredible season; the Saddle Quad hasn’t surpassed the two metre mark since ‘94,” said Acting Managing Director, Tim Hudson. He went onto mention that the pillows were ‘lush’ on patrol routes that morning. 

As the snow depths increase so does the value of the Treble Cone Spring Pass priced at $389. “We are happy to see the storm cycles lining up again in the Tasman at this time of year. With the latest snowfalls we are set to have a long and fun spring especially with all of the festivities going on,” said TC Marketing, Antony Hansen. 

With the South Island’s largest vertical descent, the most terrain and longest groomed trails, Treble Cone is New Zealand’s premier alpine resort. 360 degree views of the snow capped Southern Alps, the brilliant blue Lake Wanaka and the rugged Central Otago landscape make this one of the most memorable views of any global resort. Situated on the edge of Lake Wanaka, Treble Cone has established itself as a mecca for all snow enthusiasts both locally and abroad.
