NZ Cardrona/Treble Cone - Transport

Hi,

I'm planning to ski in Cardrona and Treble Cone (stay in Wanaka). I wonder if any concern if i drive there. Does a 4WD good enough? or the chains is a must? Thanks!!!

Are you conversant with driving on snow?
The road up the mountain is usually clear of heavy snow but the road surface can be gritty.

4WD usually good enough when I was there. :)

Thanks Mike! I do just have less experience driving on snow...just a couple times...so taking coach is one of my options. I've never been NZ thus no idea how likely the road being restricted to cars with chains on. If the road control allows 4WD, I don't need to request for chains when hire the car. just pick 4WD. :)
BTW, I note AVIS states Crown Range Rd as "dangerous road" when I try to get a quote online. Is that true? I believe road condition in NZ is similar to UK.....hope so...

Yes, you would be a lot better off with a 4WD should you decided to drive to the ski resort in NZ. Most of the roads are advised to put on chains as you go higher up in the mountain, so you would be better off with a 4WD.

With my past experience, when you rent a car in the south island in winter time, there is no extra fees to request for the chain from the rental company anyway, so you can still request for one just in case. I advise you to familiar yourself with putting on the chain before you hit the road as it is no fun to struggle in the cold with freezing hands to do the job. There will also be staff there to help with a fee of NZ $ 20 to NZ $ 30 if I am not wrong.

It is quit a drive to go up to Cardrona. So get ready! Have fun.

If you do not have snow chain going up to Mt. Hutt / Remarkables / Coronet Peak / Cardrona / Whakapapa / Turoa, the resort staff will have a check point / chain rental facility half way up the mountain.

If you do not have a 4 wheel drive vehicle, they will force you to hire the snowchain from them for the day, they will actually put the chain on for you. Also they will remove the chain when you come down after skiing.

Below is an email from Queestown couple of years ago regarding the snowchai servce they provided:
"From: Qt snow Centre <qtsc@nzski.com>
Date: May 3, 2007 7:40 AM
Subject: RE: Remarkables Snowchain requirement / rental

Hi,

We provide snowchain rentals on the Remarkables road. If chains need to
be fitted then there will be people there providing this service. Most
rental cars in Queenstown come with a set of snow chains when hired in
winter.

Hope that helps

Kind Regards
Stu Mallarkey
Guest Services Team Leader
Queenstown Snow Centre
PO Box 359, Queenstown "

Note: No such service at Treble Cone.

fish - if you have high anxiety think twice before driving up treble cone. its unbounded narrow cliff like non-tar road. i heard there are shuttle service down the mountain that you could just park and ride. Otherwise its kind of great fun driving up at some speed with tail brushing turns. :)

i love line graphics

For those going to Treble Cone but without a vehicle, they can take one of the mountain transport services. There are several local companies offering return transfers at reasonable rates.
