Mountain Biking

Make the most of the natural terrain at Coronet Peak. Starting at the top of the Coronet Express chairlift, our trails are fun, flowy and technical with breathtaking alpine views. You can expect an epic time, and because trails are accessed by chairlift it means you get faster laps and more vertical. A range of passes are available with a day, sunset or season pass on offer.

Our Mountain Bike Range

Our friends at Torpedo7 are set up at Coronet Peak over the summer with a full workshop to help you with any bike issues. They also stock spare parts that are available to purchase as well as a range of bikes, helmets and protective gear that is available for hire.


Full suspension | Size s-xl

Our go-to enudro full suspension bike is the awesome Giant Reign! This bike will have you enjoying all the downs but is still light enough that the short pedal to Rude Rock will be no problem at all! This is the perfect bike for Coronet Peak riding. Size S-XL



The Reign doesn’t come in an extra small so for the slightly smaller rider we have the super fun Giant Trance! These are a little easier to handle with the same awesome spec and will have you ready to munch up everything the mountain has to throw at you. Size XS-S



Got little shredders with you too, we got you covered with 2 options. The KHS 24” and the Giant Trance JR 26” both will eat up all the trails on the mountain with suspension that is designed for use by lighter riders. Just be careful they don’t start beating you to the bottom!!

How can I hire a bike and/or helmet?

We've partnered with Torpedo 7 on-mountain for all your biking needs. They are located on the mountain or in town on the corner of Shotover and Camp Streets. The range available for hire includes a full-suspension bike, a full-face helmet, knee/elbow pads, and goggles.  

Why rent my bike on mountain?

Torpedo 7 stock new and well-maintained bikes that are professionally checked and serviced by our team of awesome mechanics every time they are returned so they are ready for you to ride!

What time does the mountain open?

Coronet Peak is open from 10am – 6.30pm from Thursday to Sunday.

On Fridays, we are open from 10am – 8:30pm Fridays

Lift and sightseeing facilities are subject to weather conditions. 

Can I get food on the mountain?

You bet! We’ve got Cafe 1200 located just next to the chairlift to keep you fueled and hydrated for an epic day on the downhill. 

Cafe opens at 10:00am.  

Our licensed facility is a great place to savour the local beers and wines after a day on the hill. 

What do I need to bring?

The Queenstown weather can sometimes give us all 4 seasons in one day so it is important that you are prepared for an alpine environment.  Please note there are no trees for shelter from the elements up here. 

We recommend you have sturdy footwear, bring sunblock, hats, and extra layers. And of course, don't forget your camera to capture the epic views! 

Forgot the sunscreen?! Punctured your tire? Don't panic, our retail area will have everything to keep you covered. 

How do I get there?

Getting to Coronet Peak is easy; we’re the closest mountain to Queenstown and with a fully sealed road. We are only 16kms/20 mins from central Queenstown.

When is the Biking Season?

We are open 18th December 2020 through 14th March 2021.  Closed Christmas Day.

What kind of pedals are on the hire bikes?

All bikes are fitted as standard with flat pedals. If you would prefer, we do have Shimano SPD pedals which we can fit for you. 

Got your own pedals? Bring them with you and we will fit them on any bike free of charge. 

Can I ride the park?

We recommend that you have some some sort of off road biking before as the trails are not designed for beginners. If you are unsure, call us or come and have a chat with us in store.  You can always hire a bike to go and explore around what is the beginner ski area if you just fancy a ride around. 

What is included with a bike hire?

Helmets are mandatory in New Zealand and on the mountain here at Coronet Peak.  You will be supplied with a full face helmet, knee/elbow pads, and goggles. We have a range of accessories in our retail section too, if you fancy something new!

What is damage protection?

Damage protection is available for $10 per person and covers you for up to $500 of accidental damage to the bike.

Is there a workshop on mountain?

Yes! We have a workshop available on the mountain as well as a range of spare parts. So, if you have your own bike and the worst happens, then we are here to help!  

If you break something beyond quick repair, you can hire a bike and we can book your bike in with our mechanics in town, where we have a full workshop that can handle all types of repairs.
