Treble Cone is the best skifield in the South Island of NZ in my opinion
and has plenty of wide fast groomed runs so if you have some long
GS race skis you will defineitly enjoy. There is plently of off piste and hiking
(backcountry) terrain also. The mountain has 2 faces the main face and the saddle basin
with the saddle basin terrain being mostly ungroomed wide chutes.
TC does not get as crowded as the other big mountains in the South
Island due to it having a reputation as being too steep so shorter lift ques.
The closest town Wanaka has about 5 ski shops and supermarket
about 3/4 hr to Treble Cone check www.treblecone.co.nz
best mountain to find your way around when visibility is poor so
hope your first day is a fine one. If you are able to travel 4hrs north
check out Mt Hutt which is well worth a visit www.nzski.com
. This website will also give you info on the 2 Queenstown mountains
