Treble Cone Ski Resort Review
Apart from enjoying a significant vertical drop of 600m (1,968ft), skiers and boarders at Treble Cone can take a 20 minutes hike to the very top of the mountain (2,088m; 6,850ft) where, along with arguably the best view from any ski area in the country, they will find the arrangement of rocks that gives the resort it’s name.
In addition to long scenic cruising runs like Outer Limits, ungroomed descents like Sundance and New Zealand’s first six-seater chair, Treble Cone’s big attraction is Saddle Basin, with a clutch of enjoyable chutes including Bullet, Shooter and Super Pipe. Boundary Ridge chutes and Powder Bowl chutes complete the menu, there are also two half pipes one natural and one man made.
