Snow Kiting in Treble Cone, Wanaka, Otago New Zealand

Snow Kiting within the Resort:
No
Operating Hours:
9 am - 4 pm
Wanaka is a small town in Central Otago in the South Island of New Zealand, situated on the south side of Lake Wanaka.

The town is surrounded by the awe-inspiring Southern Alps, with spectacular mountains such as the Crown Range, Haast Pass, Roys Peak and Pisa Range and is close to Mount Aspiring National Park (World Heritage Area). Despite the mountainous landscape, the climate is considered to be continental, with fairly warm summers and temperatures that can reach up to 25°C/77°F, and cold winters with frequent snowfalls.

One of the biggest ski resorts near Wanaka is Treble Cone. It is situated at 29 km/18 mi from Wanaka and 90 km/55 mi from Queenstown, and offers a magnificent vertical rise over the Southern Lakes. The site is open from late June to late September and offers a great variety of facilities.

Although you cannot snow-kite within the ski field, there is a big kiting area just outside Tim’s Table on top of the Saddle Chair lift. If you follow the ridge to the West, you will find miles of untouched terrain. Perfect for intermediate to expert level snow-kiters. Enjoy the breathtaking alpine view!
