Wanaka is a major New Zealand ski destination. Below is information on the great ski facilities in the local
|Treble Cone is a more challenging field for more experienced skiers and boarders with 2 quad chairlifts and 2 beginner lifts at a base elevation of 1260m. The views over Lake Wanaka and up the Matukituki Valley are stunning. A a good day in the Saddle Basin is just heaven and there is good coffee and friendly Keas at the base station.
|Cardrona is great for beginners and intermediate skiers and boarders, it offers 3 quad chairlifts and 4 beginner lifts at a base elevation of 1669m. A great all round resort where we can be often found during the ski season.
|Snow Farm has 55 km of groomed trails for cross country skiing, and also offers snow shoeing and snow tubing. Husky sled rides are also available at certain times.
A day cross country skiing at Snow Farm is one of Tiff and Steph’s favourite activities- high in the mountains , beautiful snow and views, so few people that when you meet someone on the track you want to stop and have a chat! Highly recommended.
