3m Snow Depth & New Snow in the Saddle Basin
The snow depth in the Saddle Basin at Treble Cone (Wanaka NZ) is currently over 3m deep, which is an amazing amount of snow and has allowed for trails such as Cloud 9 which only get groomed in great snow years to be regularly groomed over the past weeks.
Treble Cone has had brilliant skiing and snowboarding both on and off-piste through the first couple of weeks of August, and looks fantastic for the coming weeks.
