Good Times Since 1947

Coronet Peak


Coronet Peak is Queenstown’s Mountain. It stands tall and proud, epitomising the energetic spirit of the town in the basin below.  

Ask any local and they’ll tell you that Coronet Peak is the local’s mountain. Not only because it’s so close to town, but because it’s become an integral part of the community.Generations have grown up skiing here, enjoying special times and making life-long memories. 

It all started in 1947

When Coronet Peak opened as New Zealand’s first commercial ski field, switching farmland for ski slopes when the snow hit the ground in winter. The mountain has been leading the way ever since; pioneering the first rope ski tow, implementing the largest snowmaking set up in the southern hemisphere, and hosts New Zealand’s longest ski day with First Tracks and Night Ski.

A Ski Racers Destination

Coronet Peak is a mountain for performance with roller coaster terrain, wide runs, fast laps and plenty of vertical. It is why world class athletes like alpine ski racer Alice Robinson choose Coronet Peak as their training ground.

The Sunrise Club

Locals will often get their snow fix early in the day enjoying First Tracks on fresh corduroy before grabbing a coffee and heading to work. Those here to take their time can savour a pizza at Heidi’s Hut while warming up by the fire or soak in the views from the Ice Bar.

Night Ski

When the sun goes down Coronet Peak takes après to a new level with Night Ski.   Skiers and boarders can get their turns in under flood-lit slopes or enjoy the tunes on the deck with a mulled wine.

Open For Summer

These days the adventures at Coronet Peak extend year-round. During the summer months locals and visitors can enjoy a scenic alpine gondola ride and 360-degree views at the top of the mountain or drop in on one of the world-class downhill or XC mountain bike trails.
