About these ratings

After the completion of a multi-million dollar update in 2008, Coronet Peak is even more popular among travelers. This ski area is just a 20-minute drive northeast of central Queenstown, making it incredibly accessible. A new ski facility at the base of the ski area features a bar, a cafĂ©, a couple of restaurants and a great viewing deck. Plus, the slopes themselves are geared to skiers and snowboarders of all levels, so beginners, intermediates, and advanced visitors will all feel right at home.

During New Zealand's summer (December-February), you won't get to ski, but you can drive up Coronet Peak for some amazing views. One TripAdvisor user enjoyed taking the interesting drive to the summit and remarks that all the twists and turns "will keep the wife quiet the whole trip."

The lifts are open from early June through September. Lift ticket prices vary depending on the time of year and different ski area. For pricing and more general information, visit the peak's website.
