Treble Cone Ski Area is famous for its legendary off-piste and backcountry terrain, as well as unrivalled views over Lake Wānaka and the Southern Alps. Some local tips: If the snow allows for it, a hike to the summit for fresh tracks is well worth the chairlift-less effort. Lunch at the cafe is also great for views and for meeting a sneaky kea!
Lessons at Treble Cone are recommended for beginners and novices, instructors make great guides to secret spots at New Zealand’s largest ski area. And if you’re a first-timer, Treble Cone provides free lift access to the ‘Nice n’ Easy’ surface lifts.
For après-ski, head back in to town and set up shop at an outdoor table at one of the many lakefront venues.
