Coronet Peak


Coronet Peak, New Zealand's First Commercial Ski Field

We opened in 1947 and since then, we’ve worked hard to enhance our racing facilities, which now include Slalom, Giant Slalom and Super-G courses. The gradient, snow conditions and terrain on the East Face of Coronet Peak is world-renowned, drawing elite ski teams from across the planet.

We’re passionate about growing the sport of Alpine Ski Racing in New Zealand, so whether you’re new to the competition scene or an Olympic athlete like our local legend Alice Robinson, you’ll find inclusive development programmes, facilities and coaches of the highest calibre at Coronet Peak.

A Reputation for Performance

Coronet Peak is the training base for New Zealand’s world cup alpine skier Alice Robinson, as well as many ski teams from around the globe including the US, Swiss, Slovakian, Norwegian, Swedish and Austrian teams. We’re also the home of the Winter Games, Continental Cup ANC series, Coronet Cup and New Zealand National Champs.

Race Facilities

The Performance Centre located in Rocky Gully is where most of the action goes down! The T-bar has a vertical rise of 180m with a ride time of 3 minutes.

The Race Arena on skiers left of the T-bar is a world class FIS homologated Slalom hill. Snowmaking helps ensure great coverage and the runs are prepared with water injection. It has two steep pitches and is constantly challenging the best skiers in the world. Out-Wide is our FIS homologated SL and GS race hill.

Queenstown Alpine Ski Team

Coronet Peak is the proud training facility provider for Queenstown Alpine Ski Team (QAST), a community-based team affiliated to Snowsports New Zealand. QAST runs part and full time race training throughout the season for 8-18 year olds.


QAST Development Programme

The Queenstown Alpine Ski Team (QAST) and Coronet Peak have designed a programme to develop the base technique and skills necessary to become a competitive ski racer. The programme provides terrain and set environments to challenge the participants and help them build the confidence to participate in the sport. The 2-week program is held in the July school holidays at Coronet Peak. The development programme provides a taste of ski race training for aspiring young racers. It is also a pre-entry requirement for young ski racers should they want to continue on with QAST through the winter.
