Universities

If you’re aged 18+ and enrolled full-time* with a tertiary institution or secondary school in New Zealand or Australia, you’re eligible for a student lift pass.

This is the best option for university groups as it represents a greater saving than our group discount on lift passes. The group discount does not apply to Student Lift passes. Evidence of full-time enrolment is required at the time of pass collection by presenting your student ID card and proof of full-time status. To be considered full-time you must attend an institution for a minimum of 32 weeks in a calendar year (EFTS course value of 0.8 or more). ISIC and BCITO cards not accepted and paid training courses and apprenticeships do not qualify for student status.

Schools

School Groups

We recognise that education outside of the classroom plays an instrumental role in raising student achievement by challenging children to manage risk in unfamiliar situations. We are also aware that careful planning and preparation is required to ensure your visit to Coronet Peak is a safe, positive experience for everyone. We are here to help every step of the way! Our dedicated School Groups team provide hands-on support for your school ski trip, from planning right through to your day on the snow and afterwards.

Why visit Coronet Peak

A fantastic learner’s area that is exceptionally well equipped with four conveyor lifts and Meadows Chairlift. Wide open terrain with plenty of runs for skiers and riders of all abilities. A spacious base area with space for your group to relax when not on the snow. A well-managed and established teaching program supported by inspiring instructors who offer serious fun in a safe learning environment.

NCEA Credits

For a learning experience the kids won’t forget, time on the snow can count towards national curriculum qualifications. Students are encouraged to maximise their time with us by working towards NCEA credits in skiing and snowboarding.

School Booking FAQs

When can I make a booking?

How long does it take to travel to the Ski Area?

Please see our travel times for advice on how much time to allow your group to get to the mountain in time for your lessons. Coronet Peak: 16km from Queenstown

How can I check the weather before my trip?

As we are situated in an alpine environment our weather can change very rapidly. Call us on: Coronet Peak 034424620. You can check our Snow Report which is updated daily at 6.30am on the website. This is the most up to date source that provides information on mountain status and the forecast for the day.

What about accompanying adults?

We offer a 1:10 adult to student FOC ratio and a 1:10 adult to student, adult at student rate for every booking. Every adult after our ratios receives a 10% discount across our products (excluding private lessons, Performance Equipment Hire and Skiwiland).

What information will you require about my group before we arrive?

We will ask you to compile and send us a key information sheet for all of your students. This enables us to pre-load all of your passes prior to your arrival.

What should we wear on the day?

Make sure you wrap up warm! Plenty of layers mean you’ll keep warm when it’s cold and are able to cool down when it’s hot. Make sure you bring eye protection, sun screen (yes, even in mid-winter!), hat, gloves and one pair of thick socks will do. Too many pairs of socks and your ski or snowboard boots can become very uncomfortable.

What should have for lunch?

We offer freshly made lunches from our restaurants ready for your group to collect between 11.00‐11.30am daily. We'll even cater for the fussiest of eaters. Request the packed lunch option when you book your group.

Do you have a Risk Assessment Management Form?
