Skiing New Zealand: Treble Cone

By on September 7, 2007 in New Zealand

Today I went skiing at Treble Cone, New Zealand….

As usual, there was a terrible road into the ski area (I dread to think what these are like to drive in the middle of winter, they are pretty slippery in spring time thanks to a surface made up of loose gravel!).

Treble Cone was an interesting ski area.  Although it only had two lifts it has some great terrain, with what appeared to a large area of off-piste.

The lifts were fast and we had a great day of skiing and exploring the mountain.

The mountain seems to have two areas serviced by lifts, the first area was directly up from the main base lodge, and the second area, which cannot be seen from the lodge, or from the area of the mountain in front of the lodge, is around the corner. To access the second area is was necessary to take the first lift and then ski over to the second area.  The second ski area was for the more advanced skiers and was great fun.

So, I have skied Treble Cone. I had a great day. The sun was out, and the skiing was good.  What more could you ask for from a day on the slopes?
