Treble Cone backcountry offers a huge range of terrain from beginner to expert.

Our guide was very caring

Susanne Mechtersheimer and family, Australia

Upper Wilkin 4-day:  "Our guide was very caring, always there when needed but unobtrusive, so we could also have some private/family time, in control and knowing what he was doing. His caring for our hungry and tired bodies with cups of tea and lovely food was excellent. We all had fun together and spent some valuable bonding time in the midst of the most beautiful landscape. We would recommend this trip absolutely. It was great for our family because it is a good, safe and a less stressful way of having this wonderful experience (having a guide, cook, motivator, organizier with you)."

More Information

There are several different areas we can access and your guide is an expert and choosing the right place for you.  From the gentle slopes of Towers Ridge to the intimidating Bold Rush Chutes there are runs for all abilities. 

If you are new to touring our qualified guides will help you every step of the way. Click into some wide skis with ski-touring bindings and skins to be fitted for uphill travel.  Snowboarders can grab some snowshoes or a split board. Learn how to get to the snow beyond lift access, assess terrain and use avalanche transceivers.

We'd love to take you into the Treble Cone backcountry to explore some new terrain away from the lifts. Check out the tour details and contact us if you have any questions.
