Coronet Peak

Coronet Peak is one the jewels of New Zealand, and this is recognised by being part of the Mountain Collective, a collection of the world's 12 best ski resorts. Being the closest mountain range to Queenstown means it’s hugely popular with everyone. Although not one of the highest ranges, Coronet Peak is loaded with snow making facilities, making sure there’s always a constant coating. In fact, it has the ability to to convert 26 million litres of water into snow within 24 hours! It also has loads of quirky extras, from night skiing through to major music festivals. By working here, your season pass will also allow you to ski at The Remarkables.
