All of our trails have been groomed to perfection overnight and will be fantastic skiing and riding for all abilities. The piste will start off firm and as the sun gets to it, will loosen up to a sugary play ground. Make the most of the great day ahead with a lesson or take a free ski area tour and get to know a few new lines.


Another beautiful day ahead! The system of high pressure that has been keeping Queenstown bathed in sunshine over the past three weeks is still with us and is forecasted to stick around for a few more days yet! The freezing level is stable at around 2100 metres so remember the sunscreen and sunnies!

Access Road

The road is open and chain free for all vehicles. Be on the lookout for areas of frost and loose grit and please keep to the left lane at all times.

Don't Forget...

The Australia and New Zealand FIS (Federation of International Snowsports) Championship starts today at Coronet Peak with the Giant Slalom event. It is the highest calibre ski race that is held New Zealand except for Olympics and World Cups. It is a Continental Cup, which guarantees the winner entry to a top 30 start at the World Cup.

Shot of the Day

With all the beautiful blue-sky days that we have had over the last two weeks we are really happy with the way that the snow is holding up, it's still dry and with the cold over night temperatures the groomers have ben able to maintain a great base!
