A partnership agreement with the new owners of Treble Cone has enabled the country's longest-running snowsport instructor training company to keep operating at the mountain.
The Rookie Academy recently announced its terms of agreement with Cardrona Alpine Resort permitting it to independently offer training and certification for Canadian, U.S. and British ski and snowboard qualifications.
It would also offer advanced training camps to the general skiing and snowboarding public.
Rookies co-director Garett Shore said, "It has been a really positive process, and we are excited with the opportunity to work with Cardrona."
Garett and fellow director Dean Hunter have been running their own training programme since 1992 at Treble Cone.
Training for New Zealand qualifications would be run by Cardrona's in-house Instructor Training Centre (ITC).
"We both have a shared vision for developing Wānaka as the premier location for advanced ski and snowboard training as well as instructor training," Garett said.
