Updated 22 June, 2006

"The Coronet 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, the record number of consecutive open days is something over 100!

The Peak doesn't stand very tall 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. Night skiing starts early July. Oh and don't forget the first tracks option, now that is a winner.

Creche, 6 years and under are free on the lifts, senior is 65 and over, youth is 16 or under or still at high school.

Facilities include fully licensed Coronet Brasserie and bar and the Westend Cafe. Rental - Ski, Boots and poles, Snowboard Repair, Ski storage. Retail outlet - ski accessories and clothing. First aid and emergency services. Licensed creche and dedicated Children's handle tow. 2 FIS specification half pipes and terrain park.

Anyone who has played on that little face will realise how many great runs there are.

And being there on a day like this? Luscious. 28 July 1999.
