Coronet Peak

Adored by locals, Coronet Peak’s easily accessible rollercoaster terrain and excellent facilities make it the winter playground in New Zealand’s adventure capital. Thanks to First Tracks (8-9am) and night skiing, this is your longest and most fun day on the snow. Peak Perfection!

With The Peak’s 280 hectares of skiable area, snow sports centre, kids’ programmes, rental department and retail offerings, there is something for everyone. Earlybirds and night owls are welcome as First Tracks starts at 8am and on Fridays and Saturdays we finish late with Night Skiing, a truly magical experience for all ages. Accessible by 18km sealed road just 25 minutes from central Queenstown makes it so easy.  

An extensive state-of-the-art, fully automated snowmaking system boosts Mother Nature’s snow helping coverage during the season, from the beginning of June to early October.

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.

A visit to Queenstown isn’t complete without skiing Coronet Peak and sister mountain The Remarkables, available on the same pass.
