Treble Cone mountain is a half hour drive from the town of Wanaka on New Zealand's South Island. This is known as 'the skier's mountain' for it's back saddle and 18 backcountry chutes for the expert skier. The access road can be a bit scarey but there is talk of a gondola from the mountain base to the day lodge to open in the next two years. The view from Treble Cone is breathtaking with Lake Wanaka and the Aspiring Ranges. It's not a beginners mountain, more for intermediates to advanced and beyond. The front face can get icey and crowded but the back saddle is kiwi powder heaven with open face, gullies, moguls and natural jumps. Like all reorts in NZ it's above the tree line. There's over five hundred and fifty hectares of terrain and backcountry day trips on offer as well as intensive week long ski improvement camps. Vertical is over six hundred metres. On mountain catering is some of the best in New Zealand, if a little crowded at lunch time with only the one main dining area with sun deck. A good challenging mountain. Wanaka provides a good mix of cheap to expensive dining options with some cool bars and pubs. Stay in anything from hostel style accommodation to six star butler serviced mountain chalets.
