Full review

I'm a local that uses the first tracks pass to the full. I am grateful that the younger crowd don't. Last season was the warmest winter on record, yet, we still had the best ski conditions any of the oldies can remember. The snow guns went 24/7 for 10 days and the fluffy super dry stuff floated all over the whole mountain. This mountain is not geared for the snow boarders, they are better serviced at Remarkables, yet the few super keen ( expert) boarders that are there all the time love the place. The Russian snow board team was here two seasons ago ripping up the racing course. The Aussie skiers comment all the time that snow conditions here are much better than at home. So if you are in for some fun this seems to be the field for the intermediate to advanced skier. As a learner the field is designed to be beginner friendly, but the queues do seem to get big at times. You hear people say that Cardrona has better lift capacity, but I only have heard comments. The best time to Ski Coronet peak is from 8am to 10am have a break for an hour and then rip into it again while everyone is having Coffees and burgers.
