Treble Cone New Zealand Ski Resort Location:

Treble Cone ski resort is conveniently located a one hour and twenty minute drive (53 miles/85 km) from Queenstown and its airport. Accommodations are typically made in Queenstown or the small town of Wanaka. The most convenient and flexible transport to the mountains is a rental car. There is a daily shuttle bus servicing the town of Wanaka from the Wanaka Hotel, Wanaka town office, Edgewater Resort and Ramada Hotel. There is a shuttle which runs from Queenstown three times a week from Info Snow (37 Shotover Street Queenstown).

If renting a car, remember that they drive on the left had side of the road from the right side of the vehicle. There are few signal lights but an abundance of roundabouts driven in a clockwise direction. If you are from a country which is the opposite and you you feel that you can not adjust to this driving ecosystem, DO NOT DRIVE! It's always a prudent to rent tire chains as well in case they are needed.
