Coronet Peak

Queenstown ‘The Adventure Capital of the World’, takes pride of place as our best winter wonderland. Right on its doorstep are glistening snow slopes, and a hundred different adventure options from heli-skiing to jet boating and bungee jumping.

Coronet Peak is only 25 minutes away and is an integral part of the glamour and excitement of Queenstown. The adrenalin-pumping, heart-thumping action on the Peak’s sunny slopes, carries over to legendary festival events and the non-stop downtown nightlife. Many visitors regard Coronet Peak as the best complete ski/board and après ski package in New Zealand – the ultimate ‘powder party’.

The field has world-class facilities, including a high-speed quad chair that whisks you up to the highest point at 1,650 metres. The view from the summit of the crown-like peak is astounding, with breathtaking views of The Remarkables, Lake Wakatipu and the Crown Range. The season runs from June to October, and the snow ratings are 20% beginner, 45% intermediate and 35% advanced. Lifts include 1 quad, 1 triple chair, 1 double chair, T-Bar, handle-tow. A magic carpet carries skiers up the Big Easy beginner’s slope.

Bus Pass New Zealand

The large modern base complex has a licensed brasserie, bar, self-service café, ski/snowboard rental and training schools. Exclusive sundown skiing and boarding is available, with attractive twilight and night combo packages, which include refreshments and meals. A range of daytime Super Pass options can be purchased for Coronet Peak and other South Island ski fields, with discounts extending to activity options in Queenstown.

Coronet Peak is the scintillating ‘flagship’ of the Queenstown winter scene. It was New Zealand’s first commercial ski field and now has a truly international flavour, hosting innovative high profile events such as the Winter Festival and Compaq 50K endurance race.

The ‘Peak’ offers top terrain, which guarantees maximum fun for everyone on the slopes. The action never stops – slide or ride into the magic of the night.

About the Author:

Danny de Hek
Like most people, I have many passions, goals and dreams. As a self made business professional, my focus is helping my clients, associates and friends, build, strengthen and maintain their success. It would be fair to say I am in the full time business of building relationships and feel my purpose and skill is connecting the right people with the right people. My professional work tends to dominate my personal life, to the horror of my partner and business mentor. They both fully support me yet give me the hard truths when I need to hear this. I am always investing in my personal development to have a fulfilled work/life balance. I enjoy Target Shooting, Hiking & Mountain Biking to clear the brain and to take the guilt away when indulging at a quirky cafe for a cooked breakfast or brunch. My passion for travelling has seen me experience the world on many occasions, my next adventure will be doing the Tibet Rail Journey on the Qinghai-Tibet Railway from Lhasa to Golmud as long as they have Wi-Fi aboard ;-) I have many goals I still wish to achieve but am pretty chuffed that I have accomplished so many of these already.
