YES Ski & Snowboard Improvement Wanaka

Stay in picturesque Wanaka and enjoy the challenge of Treble Cone with the YES team for 2 weeks every August.

Located on New Zealand's South Island, Wanaka is central to 4 ski fields, and home to the famous Treble Cone ski area - making Wanaka the perfect location to host ski training courses.

With unrivalled off-piste powder skiing, Treble Cone has more intermediate & advanced terrain than any other South Island ski area, enabling ski improvement program participants to hone their skills on some of the most challenging terrain available, including the extreme "Motatapu Chutes".

Located in the Southern Hemisphere, Wanaka is uniquely positioned to offer ski training courses when its northern hemisphere counterparts are enjoying their summer months - so course participants can schedule their training programs to complement their regular winter season cycles.

The YES Wanaka program runs for two weeks, you can choose to join one week or make it a real ski vacation and join the group for two. The arrival and departure day is Saturday. The majority of our clients stay 2 weeks to benefit from the weekend rest and to practice the things that they learned the week prior. You are then able to capitalize on these improvements and make even greater progress towards achieving your goals.

  • 7 nights accommodation at the Edgewater Resort
