Coronet Peak 75th

The Original

Join us as we celebrate the 75th year of operating as New Zealand’s first commercial ski area. Coronet Peak launched commercially in July 1947 and in doing so it forever changed Queenstown's, and ultimately New Zealand’s tourism offering, but most importantly, our passion for snow sports.

From humble beginnings that required a long walk up to a single rope tow, our mountain has evolved over its 75 years building on its position as the birthplace of commercial skiing in New Zealand, and the country’s, true ‘original’ for winter snow sports.

Good Times Since 1947

"Coronet Peaks 75th is a chance to celebrate not only the mountain, but more importantly the people who have dreamed, built and enjoyed the Peak over the last seventy-five years. I was told once “that to look over your shoulder to see where you have come from is an opportunity to draw a better path to the future”.

I agree with this, the shared passion we have for snow sports in all its forms is what empowers us. We can’t wait to celebrate and share with you over the season and we look forward to announcing an exciting events programme we have planned in the coming months."

- Nigel Kerr, Coronet Peak Ski Area Manager

75 Years Young

Celebrating 75 years of our mountain's history, sharing stories and bringing generations together. "I remember Katie going up the poma over at Rocky Gully and now of course she's a better skier than me. She's doing the same with Clara and the baton will be passed on no doubt when Clara is Katie's age."
