Ski Improvement – Wanaka, New Zealand

Ski Improvement Programs

Our improvement training courses are designed to improve your skiing in all types of terrain – groomed runs, powder, steeps, bumps or terrain park…

Our focus on improving both technique and style ensures that participants achieve the highest level of performance through customised programs tailored to your objectives.

YES Improvement ski training courses provide CSIA Level 4 instructors to help you improve your skiing technique in your choice of terrain; short turns, long turns, bumps and powder.

Program Overview

Stay in picturesque Wanaka and enjoy the challenge of Treble Cone with the YES team 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 our ski training courses.

With unrivalled off-piste powder skiing, Treble Cone has more intermediate & advanced terrain than any other South Island ski area, enabling our 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.

How good a skier do I have to be?

As long as you are linking turns on blue runs – solid  intermediate we can accept you on the course and turn you into a ski god or goddess! Treble Cone is more suited to the confident intermediate to advanced skiers with very limited green runs, a few blues and mostly blacks. It has the longest natural half pipe in the Southern Hemisphere.
