Coronet Peak

Coronet Peak is a true Queenstown icon.

Loved by locals since opening commercially in 1947, it’s become one of the resort town’s most popular attractions for domestic and international visitors.

Just 20 minutes’ drive, on paved roads, from central Queenstown, Coronet Peak is a world-class ski area featuring state-of-the-art facilities, 280 hectares of skiable terrain and breathtaking views.

With 213 snow guns, it boasts the country’s largest fully-automated snowmaking system. This, along with Mother Nature, ensures consistently good skiing and snowboarding from early June till the end of September.

Coronet Peak caters for all abilities. The large novice area has a separate beginners’ trail. More experienced skiers and riders enjoy varied terrain from wide groomed trails to steep off-piste runs, moguls and open bowls.

Coronet Peak is a popular choice for families, with youngsters aged three months to five years able to be enrolled in the fully-licensed Skiwiland Early Learning Centre. Children six and under enjoy free day lift passes every day of the season.

The day starts early on the mountain with First Tracks from 8am and on Fridays and Saturdays it finishes late with Night Skiing till 9pm.



Coronet Peak is only a short drive from Queenstown. From Queenstown, follow the road to Arrowtown until a well sign-posted turnoff to the left. Approximate total driving time, 25 mins.
