Media Release from Treble Cone

Winter arrived with recent snow down to low levels and freezing overnight temperatures.

And the good news is that snow lovers are in luck, thanks to Wanaka’s Treble Cone ski area.

The South Island’s largest ski resort has extended its earlybird season pass sale to give die-hard local supporters, and lovers of Treble Cone from around the country, one last chance to unlock unlimited skiing and snowboarding at discounted rates for the 2018 season.

Earlybird prices extended until the end of April (Monday April 30) means skiers, snowboarders and families can snap up season passes to hit the slopes as often as they want this winter, helping celebrate Treble Cone’s 50th birthday.

The deal is also the last opportunity for families to purchase a Family Unlimited season pass for two adults and children aged 17 or under, the perfect stress-free way for the whole family to enjoy winter goodness on the legendary Treble Cone slopes.

The earlybird extension is Treble Cone’s way of saying “thanks” to its loyal locals and avid fans.

For families living in Wanaka and Central Otago the offer gets even better, with Treble Cone reintroducing an extensive and better value local pass for children enrolled in Queenstown Lakes District and Central Otago District Council schools.

These passes are available to students from as far afield as Roxburgh and Glenorchy, part of Treble Cone’s renewed commitment to attract the next generation of young skiers and snowboarders. Passes are available until May 31, priced at just $99 for primary children and $149 for intermediate/secondary children.

Access to the mountain in 2018 will be easier than ever with the introduction of a free TC Mountain Shuttle to drive guests from the bottom of the access road straight to the slopes.

With lift access to 1960m, pass holders will be grinning ear-to-ear thanks to unlimited riding and no blackout days – meaning there’s no chance of missing a precious powder day.

Unlimited earlybird adult and child season passes are just $1399 and $349 respectively, providing full mountain lift access throughout the season. A Family Unlimited season pass is priced at $2599.

Renowned for its 550 hectares of skiable terrain, the longest vertical in the Southern Alps (a leg-burning 700m) and a sunny northwest-facing beginner area, Treble Cone is the perfect destination for every level of skier or snowboarder.
