If you want a single destination in New Zealand – as opposed to visiting a few different mountains on your travels – Queenstown is probably it, especially if you can cope with the cost of a few heli-drops. Although the resorts of North Island are impressive, the Southern Alps are, in the end, more compelling – and their resorts are free of volcanic interruptions.
From Queenstown you have a choice of the two local ski areas – Coronet Peak and The Remarkables – plus the option of an outing to Cardrona and Treble Cone.
New Zealand’s most famous snow resort, Coronet Peak sets the scene for some awesome snow action! This is a mountain that’s blessed with fantastic, varied natural terrain; outstanding views over Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu, and world class ski runs to suit all abilities of skiers and boarders.
Everyone can ski like a pro at Coronet Peak – there are dedicated slopes for first timers, long wide groomed trails and plenty of choice for more experienced skiers.
Once you know the ropes, you’ll enjoy the vertical off the express quad, or exploring the rolling terrain with plenty of interesting dips and drops for great variety. For boarders, Coronet is a natural terrain park, full of endless hits and powder stashes!
If skiing all day just isn’t enough, Coronet Peak lets you ski all night as well. The fabulous night skiing option allows you to make the most out of your Vacation Station package (Friday and Saturday nights, mid July to mid September).
Flights are into Queenstown. Private transfers, local transport, or a rental car are readily available.
