Fresh Snow in advance of Treble Cone opening

Fresh Snow in advance of Treble Cone opening
June 28, 2012

Wintry blasts during the last week have brought fresh snow to the South Island's largest ski area, Treble Cone, topping up the snow base in time for its opening today (Thursday 28th June).

With good snowfalls forecast and ideal snow making temperatures, skiers and boarders will enjoy good conditions in the Home Basin, for their first turns of the season.

Treble Cone Slopes Manager Dave Crotty "we are excited to get the 2012 season underway and with a forecast of more snow from the Nor' West over the next three days we are very positive about opening up more of the mountain in time for the school holidays next week.

"The snow groomers have been working hard moving snow around, packing and grooming the runs to create optimum snow conditions."

Over 170 staff from all over the globe have finalised their training this week in preparation for the opening and school holidays. All are looking forward to ensuring smooth running of the mountain's facilities and to welcome the season's first clients.

For the 2012 season Treble Cone has made many improvements to its world class resort, including the development of the Jazz Fun Park as well as upgrades to the café, electronic ticketing system and trail maps.
