In 1947 when it all started, Coronet Peak introduced the world of skiing to New Zealand, it was painted as a glamorous international lifestyle for the daring and bold. How times have changed! The accessibility of a great ski area like Coronet Peak is one of the reasons- for the vibrant outdoor recreation that New Zealand is now known for. Just an easy 20 minute drive from the heart of Queenstown, Coronet Peak has modern lifts, restaurants, world-class grooming and extensive snowmaking that covers the entire mountain. Mind blowing views, awesome roller coaster terrain and incredible back bowls to throw down a challenge to the very best - it’s no wonder why some of the best ski racers in the world use Coronet Peak on their international training circuit. As New Zealand’s best known ski area, it is a must do activity for any Queenstown visitor and a firm favourite amongst locals. From gentle learners’ slopes to night skiing under the stars on the week- end, there really is something for everyone. And, with a fully sealed road right to the ski area, it’s so close and easy.
