Treble Cone ranked as top New Zealand/Australian ski area

Treble Cone ranked as top New Zealand/Australian ski area
May 26, 2011

New Zealand ski resort Treble Cone has been ranked first in a survey by Australian magazine, Your Money, to find the best value ski area throughout Australia and New Zealand.

Comparing 11 major resorts in Australia and New Zealand, including packages and prices for peak season dates in July and August, each resort was given a score based on key attributes consumers look for when planning a trip to the snow. These included the cost of travel and accommodation, equipment hire, lift passes and quality of snow and terrain.

Lisa Narroway of Your Money Magazine explained "Treble Cone stood out as a top performer for quality of skiing, annual snow fall and the diversity and nature of the terrain."

Treble Cone Marketing Manager Nigel Kerr added "with the Australian dollar so strong, New Zealand is a very affordable choice for Australians this winter.

"All New Zealand ski areas did well in the Your Money Magazine survey but the fact Treble Cone came out top shows how important space, personal service and big vertical are when people evaluate a skiing experience. Combine this with New Zealand's most diverse freeride terrain and that unforgettable view, and you can see the appeal!"

Treble Cone, located near Lake Wanaka, is scheduled to open on 23rd June for the 2011 season.
