Fine day with cool breeze

Cool temperatures today so dress warmly. Otherwise expect pretty good views in all directions and great coffee. The dirt is holding enough moisture to be great riding so come up and get your laps in. XC has had some love this morning and riding really well. Coronet Peak is open Thurs - Sundays until March 14th this summer.

Road conditions

Our road is an easy 20 minute drive from Queenstown with free parking directly outside our cafe. We are also only a 60 minute drive from either Wanaka or Cromwell so come explore the region.

What's happening today

We are open Thursday - Sundays 10am - 4.30pm with a late night Friday (8.30pm). Expect good dirt on the trails and superb views. At Level 2 we do ask you follow guidelines - stay home if you are unwell, keep your distance and practice good hygiene. We won't have the deck toys out at level 2, sorry kids. Please keep an eye out here and on our Facebook page for event updates at level 2. The Queenstown Adventure Film Festival has been postponed to March 12th, in hopes of going back to level 1. For more information please visit their Facebook page. The Super D 'Brake burner' event this Sunday has been cancelled.

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.
