Coronet Peak

Coronet Peak is New Zealand’s most popular ski destination, mainly due to its proximity to Queenstown. Located in the heart of the South Island of New Zealand, Coronet Peak is only a 20-minute drive from Queenstown and provides visitors with majestic views of Lake Wakatipu, Lake Hayes and The Remarkables. 

Because of its extensive snowmaking facilities, Coronet Peak is one of the last ski areas to close in the Southern Hemisphere, with a season that typically runs from June to mid-October. The mountain offers great terrain for all abilities, and night skiing is also available on weekends.

Advanced skiers can look forward to rolling slopes, steeps and some off-piste adventures on the fringes of the resort.
