Treble Cone to Extend Ski Season in 2016

Wanaka, New Zealand – Following a record ski season in 2015, Treble Cone Ski Area will be extending its winter by a week in 2016.

Next season at Treble Cone is scheduled to open June 23, 2016 and run through until the October 2, which will include the first week of the September/October New Zealand school holidays.

“This extension will increase the opportunities for families with school aged children to enjoy time on the slopes at Treble Cone next winter. Additionally the extension will provide an additional week for all local and visiting skiers and riders to enjoy the mountain,” says Jackie van der Voort, Treble Cone’s general manager.

Spring is traditionally a great time for skiing and riding at Treble Cone; the Saddle Basin snow depth is generally around a couple of meters deep, the number of sunny days to enjoy the mountain increases, there are plenty of beds available in Wanaka and good deals to be found, and the days are a little longer, allowing for a walk to stretch the legs along the lake after skiing or an après-ski drink in town.

Treble Cone’s season pass sale ends November 30, 2015.
