About Coronet Peak

The Peak of Perfection

World-class facilities, superb conditions and a spectacular rollercoaster terrain make Coronet Peak New Zealand's most exciting destination for snow lovers of any ability.

An easy 20 minutes from picturesque Queenstown, Coronet Peak is perfect for serious action or sharing great times. Stunning high points and rolling trails offer seasoned skiers and riders something to really get your teeth into - including NZ's longest opening hours and thrilling weekend night skiing. For those just getting to know the snow the dedicated learner and novice areas make finding your snow feet easy.

Your friends will love Coronet Peak too. Home to premier events such as the Queenstown Winter Festival and the 100% Pure New Zealand Winter Games, the après ski is as impressive as the slopes. Stretch out your muscles and take in the sights and live music at the base building, or wrap your hands around hot chocolate or cold beer at Heidi's Hut. Our Euro-style pizza and pasta makes a great reward after hitting the slopes. And remember - it's only a perfect run if your friends see you do it.
