Nestled below the towering mountains of the Southern Alps, Lake Wanaka is home to the largest skiiable terrain in Australasia.
With two world-class ski areas, spectacular scenery and a vibrant resort town, Lake Wanaka is paradise for those passionate about skiing. With a slightly slower pace than Queenstown, skiing here is family friendly, with gentle beginner’s slopes, and boasts excellent natural snowfall during winter.
Cadrona and Treble Cone both offer off-piste terrain and varied ski or snowboard experiences. There's plenty of opportunities for the adrenaline-pumping option of heli-skiing as well as cross-country touring.
For the ultimate experience, stay on-snow or in a remote back-country hut, and enjoy fresh powder turns with the first rays of the sun.
