We had extra time and it being winter we decided to head up one of the mountains for a look-see.
We drove up Coronet Peak, its not that busy as not much snow.
We weren't planning to go on a trip, but after having a nosey inside the complex which is huge we realised we could go to the top on the ski lift to a lookout ($30) and a walk. We hired boots for $5pp.
However when we got to the top we weren't allowed to go walking due to it being too slippery (yet others went...) hence only 4 star.
So we could of just kept our own shoes for lookout.
Advised staff at bottom too and they weren't advised regarding they weren't letting people walk around the top so apologised.

This peak, within a short drive of Queenstown is a destination because of the excellent vistas you can enjoy from its slopes. it is also a great place for hiking and climbing, and in the winter months, skiing.

Kia ora Gabriel
Thanks for your review. From Dec 1st this year we will open for a 4 month summer with rides to the top of the mountain. Please come back and enjoy an even better 360 degree view.
Kind regards
Nigel Kerr

Coronet Peak was awesome and unexpected! We drove up to the viewing platform near the lodge and watched the paragliders. It was Easter time (before snow) so no snow tires needed. That wasn't enough though...we really wanted a hike and asked the young kid directing traffic where to start. He said there were two trails to the top of coronet peak--one was the mountain bike trail and the other was also a mountain bike trail but better than the other one if hiking, so that's the one we took. (If you're looking at the peak, the entrance to the hike/bike trail is on your left.) It took us an hour to hike up with quite a few photo stops. It's not the easiest slope to climb in autumn. (It would be really messy in the wet.) But it was beautiful all the same and once at the top--the view of the 'other side' is spectacular!

It the 1st time for us to learn skiing. We had to check in our 3 years old girl into Skiwiland to learn to ski. We were worries that she will be upset that she can't join us in the main field but she absolute enjoyed herself. We end up as one of the best skiers among us.

We had great fun with our coach at Coronet Peak. Our instructors had a great patient on us (actually me being a man). From the start of the lesson, it harder for beginner man to learn skiing because man tends to be in control then let nature take its course. Indeed, I had fallen the most in our group.

The view and snowing is the greatest thing happen on that day. Food and drinks are pretty standard as it full of people.

We drove up to watch the sunset

The views from the car park are well worth the trip

Nice to watch the light from the sunset catching the top of the Remarkables and not very many people at that time of day
