This expansive mountain has the longest vertical rise in the Southern Lakes with far reaching boundaries spread over two large basins. Widely considered the best freeride mountain in the Southern Lakes, Mother Nature has certainly taken care of Treble Cone’s terrain, sculpting fun gullies, wide faces and exciting undulating runs.
The ski area covers two basins – the Saddle and Home basin. Both provide some of the best lift-accessed freeriding in New Zealand, with natural gullies and halfpipes, wide-open faces, technical steeps, powder pockets, wind lips and drops galore. The Home basin is serviced by a high-speed 6-seater chair, while the Saddle is accessed by a fixed grip quad chair. Additionally, there is a FREE platter tow lift on the beginners area.
While Treble Cone doesn’t offer a huge variety of groomed runs, the trails they do offer are fun and challenging with high-quality early-morning corduroy. The base facilities include a large cafe/restaurant, rental and tuning shop, and Racer’s Edge retail shop.
