New Zealand is world renowned for incredible skiing and beautiful mountain ranges. Queenstown is the perfect base to access Cardrona, The Remarkables, Treble Cone and Coronet Peak ski fields. Get in touch with Student Horizons to put together a NZ snow tour including equipment hire, ski/snowboarding lessons and plenty of other fun activities.
There are few tourism destinations in New Zealand that can boast the reputation that Queenstown has built for itself. People both in NZ and around the globe know of the town and its many exciting adventure activities.
One word sums up this mountainscape above all others (even if it’s a little obvious) – remarkable. Like something straight out of Lord Of The Rings, this range stands proudly above the international airport, with jagged peaks that look as sharp as a knife. However, the mountainside that faces away from the town is far gentler, with a six-person chairlift and three quads.
This mountain is a little gentler than its neighbour, with far more intermediate (blue square) slopes – ideal for anyone looking to up their skills without stressing out too much.
One of the major drawcards of Coronet Peak is its night skiing. Every Friday and Saturday you can enjoy the park evening in the dark, as hundreds of lights keep things sparkling from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m.
