What's New in 2020Cardrona and Treble Cone are now owned by the same parent company (Wayfare NZ), who have been successfully operating Cardrona for a number of years now. This is great news for all skiers and snowboarding, with the lift tickets now being valid at both mountains. So double the terrain, for the same price. Look out for more news soon about changes and developments at Treble Cone for 2020 and beyond!
Also, Cardrona are doing their bit for the environment:Cardrona will become the first major tourism operator in New Zealand to stop ordering single-use plastic bottles to sell in their food and beverage outlets – it's all over as of December 2019! This is what they have to say:
Most single-use plastic bottles (primarily used by large beverage corporations) are made from polyethylene terephthalate (PET). These bottles have a huge carbon footprint in both production and transportation, and large orders of PET bottles travel shrink-wrapped in even more single-use plastic. Our decision will eliminate more than 50,000 PET bottles from being produced, transported and sold on the mountain every year. We'll have alternatives to PET bottles available on the mountain that include fresh and carbonated water stations, aluminium cans, and glass. Aluminium cans are easy to recycle, and light to transport – especially when empty and crushed!

Skiing NZ during Covid uncertainty.
We are so thankful for the advice, support and effort Susan and her colleagues went to in order to make our holiday happen. Organising 2 adults and 3 young kids with flight changes and cancellations and covid zone transits is never an easy feat, yet Susan supported us the whole way. The accommodation Susan recommended was perfect and all our other holiday bookings went off without a hitch. We had an amazing holiday and are so thankful Susan helped make that happen. Thank you!!
