Last year after I spent one and an half month around New Zealand with my own van I ended up in Queenstown, where I spend a beautiful time. There, I went snowboarding for the frist time as Sicilian. It was incredible experience, the location, the atmosphere, the people... definitely recommended. And, now I moved to Vancouver for the winter season. Super excited!!!

Coronet is a delight to ski, stunning views, easily the most accessible in Queenstown, some great wide runs for those starting out. Love it, and Queenstown is awesome fun afterwards! Can't wait to go back.

Coronet Peak is a fun resort but you only need a day or two there. It has some nice steep terrain and the views from up top are amazing. The two main problems with the resort are firstly the crowds. It tends to be one of the most popular resorts because it is close to Queenstown. Secondly, the snow can be icy because of the aspect. Having said that I have had a lot of fun at Coronet Peak and it is certainly worth checking out. My advise would be to do a day or two there and then try out some of the other nearby resorts.

Coro as it’s called by those familiar with the resort is a very family orientated resort, being a lot lower than all the other resorts it tends to get icy very quickly as snow washes out a lot of the time when it’s snowing up remarks, cardys or TC.
However on a powder day it’s one amazing place to play at, specially taking the green gates lift and going all along the resort boundaries with some cheeky off-piste cameos.
Keep coro as your option for heavy dumps as the road is a lot more accessible than all other resorts so road closures for remarks or cardys could mean a lot of fun at coro.
Also night skiing is a thing here, and again Better to do it after a big dump, otherwise bring your ice skates! (Kidding, but it was almost true at the end of the season)
Lots of narrow cat tracks connecting the various slopes, so when it’s crowded you’ll feel it, again green gates probably offers the best option at the top going left at the top there’s a big bowl that discourages kids and beginners so 60% of the people up that mountain.

I loved riding here and got to ride most days as I worked there. It's especially fun when you get a powder day and there's so many nice side hits to ride. Will definitely be back!
