Skiing at Treble Cone, Lake Wanaka

Von Lake Wanaka Tourism

The ski field of Treble Cone and Snow Park are brilliantly equipped and offer a mix of terrain for skiers and snowboards of all abilities.

A taste of Wanaka wilderness

The lake, mountains and ski fields around Wanaka provide endless scope for fun and adventure.

  • Get a guide to take you fly-fishing on the lakes, rivers and streams in the area. The region offers superb brown and rainbow trout fishing.
  • The best way to experience the lake is to get out on it. Take a boat cruise or try jet-boating. Lake Wanaka is a playground for paddle boarders, water-skiers, kayakers and wind surfers alike. 
  • Go white water sledging or canyoning on the rivers - fast and furious fun for the daring.
  • Saddle up with a horse trek and venture into the wilderness - no previous riding experience required.
  • Walking in the mountains could be as simple as a one hour stroll or as challenging as a four day hike. Mount Aspiring National Park is a dreamland of mountains, glaciers, river valleys and alpine lakes.
  • Go mountaineering with a professional mountain guide.
  • Nordic or cross-country skiing is the thing to do at the Snow Farm.
  • The ski fields of Cardrona, Treble Cone and Snow Park are brilliantly equipped and offer a mix of terrain for skiers and snowboards of all abilities.

Quirky things to see

The people of Lake Wanaka are interesting and imaginative, as you can tell from these special attractions.

  • At Stuart Landsborough's Puzzling World you'll get lost in a world unlike any other! With their mix of bizzare buildings, rooms of illusion and the world famous Great Maze, prepare to baffle your brain and challenge reality. Even the toilets offer a photographic treat!
  • At the classic movie theatre, Cinema Paradiso, you can choose either a comfortable couch or a car to sit in. Then at  intermission (yes we still have that here in Wanaka) it’s time for hot cookies and homemade ice cream. A real treat.
  • Things are always cheerful at the Wanaka Beerworks, a boutique brewery located next to Wanaka airport.
  • Eclectic describes the collection at the National Transport and Toy Museum - there's everything from cars to fire engines, bicycles to army tanks, model cars to aircraft.
  • Take aim at Have A Shot - the place to try your hand at a range of shooting activities. While you're there, show off your swing at the mini golf course.
