Meeting or Conferencing at Edgewater 2015

For many businesses and organisations planning is already underway for meetings or conferencing in 2015.  Edgewater’s lakefront location and tranquil environment is ideal for executive meetings of up to 16 delegates or larger gatherings of up to 120 delegates.  

In November Edgewater hosted the Urological Society of Australia and New Zealand.  Here is just a little of what they had to say about us.   “We found you all so welcoming and obliging, nothing was ever a problem.  Your pre-planning and attention to all of our requirements was excellent and we are most grateful for all you did to ensure everything went smoothly from the venue and accommodation perspective”.  Check our other testimonials here

Home Basin Welcomes Barista Coffee

During the summer Treble Cone will be developing arguably the region’s most scenic café location – at the top of Home Basin.  From this location skiers and riders can refuel before heading back to the Saddle Basin.

They’ll also be undertaking extensive earthworks which will provide winter skiers with new intermediate trails in the Saddle Basin.  

Recently, Treble Cone was announced as the winner of New Zealand’s Best Ski Resort award for the second consecutive year at the 2nd World Ski Awards held in Kitzbuhel, Austria.

Treble Cone is targeting a 2015 opening date of 25 June.
