Calm and sunny

Another beautiful day in paradise. Dry winter snow that has been thoroughly tickled up by the grooming team overnight for your riding pleasure. Come on up, grab your vertical and burn those legs out. Plus for your après work pleasure we will carry on with Night ski under the stars, should be another stunning one.

Road conditions

Please watch for grit on the road and some ice this morning on the top bends. Also, always remember to carry your chains. Please drive with care and keep your speed down while maintaining a good distance to the vehicle in front of you.

What's happening today

We have something for everyone at Coronet Peak - from sledding, to skiing, to that hot morning coffee at Heidi's Hut. Between First Tracks and Night ski we are open today from 8am to 9pm. Whether it’s a first time snow experience or long term locals we have you covered. Please remember to protect our winters and yourself by scanning in on the Covid tracer app on arrival.

Non skiing activity

Take a gondola ride to our 360° views above our mountain. Or have some fun sledding with the kids in our primo base area sledding lane. Sleds available from our retail shop on the street.

  • Give way to those downhill
  • Look before you leap
  • Snowboarders: take care turning onto your heel edge

Backcountry Terrain:

The Back Bowls are steep Expert Terrain. As such they have an increase in hazard, including avalanche. The Back Bowls may be closed due to Avalanche Hazard Mitigation or inclement weather as these conditions heighten risk in this terrain. Back Bowls are closed at night and assessed for opening daily.

 

Backcountry Advisory:

If you decide to go skiing or snowboarding in the backcountry you need to carry the right safety equipment. Avalanches happen, so it’s important to choose your terrain wisely. Coronet Peak Back Bowls is managed carefully by Coronet Peak Patrol. When the Back Bowls sign indicates the terrain is "open" you may proceed with caution into this area. Out on the far col you will see a red and an orange Ski Area Boundary Sign on the rock which indicates the limits of Coronet Peak ski area and the back-bowls. If you venture past this sign the terrain is highly hazardous, prone to avalanches with cliffs and ice.
It is good practice to provide a contact person with details of your backcountry trip. You can also pop into our Ski Patrol office at any time during opening hours to check on local conditions and advise patrol of your intentions. Please be aware that our Ski Patrol do not patrol outside the Ski Area Boundary and only venture here in the case of a known emergency. You need to be well prepared and self-sufficient with all the necessary safety equipment and the knowledge to use it.
Please visit the Mountain Safety website for details on what is required to ensure a safe backcountry adventure.
