“We are excited to get the 2012 season underway and with a forecast of more snow from the Nor’ West over the next three days we are very positive about opening up more of the mountain in time for the school holidays next week,” said Dave Crotty, Treble Cone’s slopes manager. “The snow groomers have been working hard moving snow around, packing and grooming the runs to create optimum snow conditions.”

Over 170 staff from all over the globe were finalising their training this week in preparation for the opening and school holidays. The staff is looking forward to ensuring smooth running of the mountain’s facilities and to welcome the season’s first clients.

For the 2012 season Treble Cone has made many improvements to its world class resort, including the development of the Jazz Fun Park as well as upgrades to the café, electronic ticketing system and trail maps.

The current snow base is 45cm in the Home Basin. Treble Cone will open on Thursday with the first lift at 9.00am. For further information, snow reports and web cams, visit www.treblecone.com.
