Owner description: Coronet Peak is New Zealand's most accessible ski resort, an easy 20 minute drive from Queenstown via a scenic, sealed access road. Whether you're an expert seeking long rolling trails or completely new to snow sports searching for a learn to ski/board package, the friendly team at Coronet Peak are ready to make your mountain experience a fun and easy one. Modern facilities, extensive snow making and long operating hours all so close to Queenstown means more time "on snow" during your holiday.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2012

The road was a bit too winding and steep. We encountered lots of "road works" which casued us delays.

“Close to town, good variety”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2012

If you're looking for a ski field that is close to Queenstown, Coronet Peak is it. Regular buses depart from town and you're soon on the slopes.

Plenty of lockers are available for hire, there's a shop for forgotten items and souviners and plenty of food choices.
