Coronet Peak Ski Area
Adored by locals, The Peak's easily accessible rollercoaster terrain embraces every level of skier and rider. Consistent snow conditions with Mother Nature given a helping hand by a state-of-the-art, fully automated snowmaking system, mean coverage from the beginning of June to early October.
Dedicated learner and novice areas away from the main trails make learning fun and easy, while higher up, choose your slopes as you go - follow the sun, the steeps, or maybe a little back country, or explore the contours and take in spectacular views. Talking about views, the base building has floor-to-ceiling windows each side - one way out over the magnificent Wakatipu Basin, the other takes in the mountain action.
Outside you can set up base camp on the massive deck to relax, people watch or enjoy reular live music. The day starts early with First Tracks from 8am and finishes late with Night Skiing under lights on Friday and Saturdays.
Over at Rocky Gully a dedicated race training area hosts world-class athletes and you can pick up fabulous Euro-style pizzas and pasta at Heidi's Hut while you watch the action from the deck. Coronet's also home to FIS ski racing, the Queenstown Winter Festival, and this year, the bi-annual, 100% Pure New Zealand Winter Games.
Coronet Peak’s 280 skiable hectares are accessed by a six seater express chair, 2 high speed quad chairs, 1 T-bar, 1 beginner handle tow and 3 carpet lifts. A dedicated beginner’s area has three surface conveyor lifts, a beginner tow and its own snowmaking.
Coronet Peak is an easy 25-minute (18km) drive from Queenstown. The ski area has a scheduled opening date of June 9, 2012 and the season generally lasts until mid October.
