Firstly, Queenstown is awesome (see my review of Queenstown), but this article is about skiing generally for total novices like myself and my family who went for the first time ever last week. Our boys are 8, 9 and 10 but it’s best to start...More

Well worth the trip up the hill to see this, snow ball fights and all! My wife's first experience in the snow was awesome and the highlight of our trip.

Having dicky knees, I don't ski. But a drive up to Coronet Peak was great. The car park was icy, so care needed.... but nothing unusual in that. Really nice for young families. Plenty to eat and drink inside and there was quite a crowd...More

We drove up to Coronet Peak after the end of the ski season. It is a pretty windy road, and there were great views from the top car park.

We had s great morning at coronet peak, the mountain is very accessible from qtown or Arrowtown. The facilities are great, but felt s little overpriced to be fair. Great grooming and not many people made for a great morning.

No crowds, great skiing, small field with just enough runs to keep all members of the family happy (from intermediate to advanced snow boarders and skiers) - easy drive from Queenstown and close by! Straight to the car park, short walk to the facilities, ski...More

Yes through Skiwiland. Check out the website Coronet peak co.nz and you will see the 'My first ski school' programme they run. They have their own slope and magic carpet. Prefect for under 5's
