Snow Report Last Updated: Fri 01 Jul 11:11 AM

A fine and sunny day today with some morning frosts down in the basin. Winds today will be strong out of the South West -

We are back and operating! Our Meadows and Greengates lifts, Magic Carpet, Beginner and Rocky Gully T-bar lifts are now open! Stay tuned for the Coronet Express lift open time shortly! Thank you for your patience as Aurora Energy responded to the power fault at Dalefield substation from 8.17am this morning! They have now restored power to Coronet Peak and it's all go out on the snow! It is icy and slippery on the roads today; please take great care on the roads especially if driving up to Coronet Peak today - keep a good amount of distance to the vehicle in front of you at all times. We received 3 cm of new snow at the top of the mountain after closing yesterday, the snow guns have been on all night topping that up with another 3cm of man made snow. Conditions will be clear and the snow is chalky! Perfect for getting on your edges today and carving down our roller coaster runs. Wind today will be moderate from the SW - So wrap up warm.

Road conditions

Chains need to be carried on all vehicles - please take care when driving up to the drop zone. Ice is present on the road from carpark 7 upwards. Please drive cautiously and increase your following distances - avoid stopping on icy sections. Car park shuttles will be operating frequently. Please consider car pooling or jump on one of our mountain busses!

What's happening today

Like many businesses we are currently affected by staff absences due to COVID isolation requirements. We are supporting our team and trying to roster more staff in wherever possible. There may be some areas on the mountain where we are unable to staff normally and our service levels may be affected. Please be patient as we are working hard to make your day a memorable one. We truly appreciate your understanding and hope you will have an epic day at Coronet Peak.

Sightseeing

Unfortunately with our forecasted winds today, we will NOT have gondolas on Coronet Express. The Cafe has spectacular views and even better coffee!

Getting up the mountain this season:

We know you're all keen to hit the slopes this year so we've got some updates to make it easier for you to get up the mountain. Please find these through the below link.

Maps

Only stop where you can be seen from above. Always look uphill before moving again. Only stop on the edge of trails or beside fixed objects.

Limit your speed in busy areas. Match your speed to surrounding skiers and riders. Be prepared for others to make sudden changes in direction or speed.

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

Stay 5m from others. If less than 5m from others you must slow down. The faster you go the more space you must give others.

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.

Let People Know Before You Go

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.
