From 1,649 metres the legend that is Coronet Peak starts you off with a spectacular outlook of lakes, mountains and rolling farmland, then takes everything up a notch with a ski buzz few mountains ever achieve.
From die-hard locals stopping off for a few runs on the way to work, to ski teams from around the world in training and holiday-makers happy to cruise, the 280 hectares of terrain is like an extension of Queenstown’s renowned atmosphere.
Some 462 vertical is varied enough for everyone to make their mark, and with less than half-an hour back to town the fun never has to stop.
