Treble Cone Ski Area in Wanaka has announced plans today for a Gondola to provide access from the valley floor to the alpine playground. A resource consent application has recently been lodged to provide for the link and its associated buildings.
The proposal will offer safety and efficiency improvements, as well as providing visitors with a greater level of enjoyment and customer service.
The proposed gondola will take 2,000 passengers per hour, up the 945m vertical rise from Cattle Flat to the Ski Area. The 3.3km trip will take 10.5 minutes, a significant saving on existing drive times.
The new project marks the first alpine gondola in New Zealand. This project will have a landmark effect on year round tourism in New Zealand.
The gondola base buildings have been designed to reflect a homestead and farm buildings of a form traditionally associated with high country stations of the Southern Alps. The buildings will provide for gondola machinery and cabin storage, as well as the ticketing and commercial functions associated with the ski area.
The Gondola at Treble Cone will provide Wanaka with a year round facility which can provide visitors with a world class alpine experience”
Initial construction of the $20.0 million gondola is likely to take 10 months. Other associated facilities covered in the application will then be staged according to utilization. The establishment of the facility will support 13 full time jobs during construction and 3 full time jobs on an ongoing basis.
