The Peak

Coronet Peak is a classic little ski hill, 20 minutes from the centre of Queenstown. It has probably the most consistent weather of all New Zealand ski fields and with the modern wonders of snow making manages to produce a lot of ski days, I think the record number of consecutive open days is something over 100!

The Peak doesn't stand very tall, just 1 649 metres ( thats 5 400 feet ), but faces south and keeps the snow well. Some great powder days to be had but you better be there early. Some fantastic terrain, undulations and options to keep you entertained on the 3 major lifts.

Night skiing on Fridays and Saturdays adds another dimension, especially with the full moon. Starting in early July.
