Coronet Peak, South Island
This epic South Island ski resort is located right in centre of the action – it’s closest to Queenstown, but also not too far away from the scenic Wanaka. Facilities are open from early morning to late at night, offering a number of pistes and slopes for all abilities. There are various practice spots running along the base, and an ice-load of trails running everywhere in between. The Big Easy is quite popular among beginners, while the awesome Exchange Drop entices expert riders.
