Treble Cone Fresh Lines (22-Jun-10)

Treble Cone, New Zealand, June 22, 2010 - Opending day is upon

Treble Cone;

Opening day is upon us and our chance to kick off the Wanaka season this Thursday with some great turns. Warmer weather over the last week has seen the snow settle and thin out in the lower mountain however good work by the snow making crew has ensured opening. We will open with the Learners lifts and the Six seater express in the Home Basin. With Upper Main St flowing down Easy Rider to base. Early season conditions dominate Off piste and care should be taken. More snow is falling tonight which will improve conditions further.

The cafe will be open and in a staff testing yesterday it scored very well, so be sure to try it out on Thursday. Rental also had a run through using the staff – as did Snow sports school. They will both be open and lessons will be going out for all ages and abilities.

Special treats for Opening Day include Amisfield bubbles in the courtyard at 1pm. Amisfield’s generosity should ensure enough for all comers. Alongside this we will have ‘Windblown’ a local 3 piece band entertaining – aptly named for a mountain performance. The biggest treat will be the AirBag. And I mean BIG in a physical sense as well as what you can do on it. Set up at base it will be free to use to Treble Cone skiers and boarders from noon till three. A soft landing guaranteed no matter what your form in the air! For those for whom the scale and height may be off putting I can guarantee you will be well entertained by the ‘flying circus’ which I expect the Airbag to create.

Wax & tune – an essential part of sliding but often forgotten. Don’t ruin your opening day by sliding on untuned skis / boards. Get them sorted by the professionals at Thunderboards. Drop them in at Thunderbikes on the corner of Helwick and Brownston streets and pick up on the mountain on opening day. (15% off all tunes prior to 24/6). Opening Day special – Edge and Wax, ONLY $25.00 (normally $35.00) See you on the hill
