Ski Resort

Coronet Peak is New Zealand’s premier and most popular ski resort. It is a 25 minute drive from Queenstown along sealed roads. Seasons run approx mid June to early October, opening from 9am – 4pm. Coronet Peak is suited to all levels offering beginner to advanced slopes.

Coronet Peak has 280 hectares of terrain accessible via a six seater express chair, an express quad, a double chair and T-bar. There is a designated beginner’s area called the Meadows with 1 beginner handle tow, 2 carpets and its own snowmaking.

Night skiing is available on Friday and Saturday’s 4pm – 9pm. Children under 6 years get a free lift pass. A regular shuttle service also runs from Queenstown.

The downside to skiing here is that it’s always crowded.

Base area facilities include several cafes, a huge heated deck, ski and board lessons, retail, hire equipment and repair areas and a licensed crèche.

Coronet Peak’s longest run is the M1-Big Easy, 2.4 km long and popular with intermediate and advanced skiers and boarders.
