Coronet Peak

Coronet Peak ski resort is arguably the most popular ski resort on the South Island of New Zealand, possibly because of its convenient location close to Queenstown. It's pretty good for beginners and intermediates too with plenty of well-groomed blue trails. Advanced riders can also have fun here with 30 percent of the trails rated as Black, including runs with moguls.

People don't ski Coronet Peak because of its size. Coronet Peak Ski Resort is not particularly large at only 280 hectares with a 481-metre vertical drop, but they've made it work really well. With a very efficient lift infrastructure, the resort copes well with heaps of riders. The only downside of crowds at any ski resort is missing out on fresh tracks. The terrain is treeless, so the ski field is exposed to the elements, but thankfully the weather is fairly stable.

Coronet Peak has 2 main terrain parks – the Fun Zone and Park after Dark. There are 4 restaurants to refuel at plus shops and repair services available. There are 8 lifts altogether, and you can see the conditions for yourself here.


Coronet Peak ski resort offers only limited on-mountain accommodation at a small lodge with dormitory-style rooms. But most people that ski Coronet Peak opt to stay at Queenstown – just a short 20-minute drive away. A renowned party town, Queenstown is a favourite thanks to its wicked nightlife and access to sweet adventure activities like bungy jumping. There's also stacks of accommodation available in the town too, ranging from hostels to hotels, motels, apartments, B&Bs and lodges. Like any ski holiday, it is always best to book a Coronet Peak ski package if you want more bang for your buck - Universal Traveller can help get you there.
