  • We were driven in a huge group with AATKings around Coronet Peak and the views were stunning from a distance.  more »
  • We went during the school holidays in July so it was fairly busy as is expected. Having said that, lots of fun on the snow. Great for everyone including those that are new to skiing or snowboarding...  more »
  • Oh my gosh what wasn’t enjoy. We did a gondola/pizza deal on Bookme. What a great value. I dont like heights yet found the open gondola on way up very enjoyable (to my surprise) my son not so much...  more »
  • Great mountain! Good skiing (my personal favorite is The Hurdle,) great community and most of everything is amazing. The snowfall is very few though since it's so low to the ground.
  • We were so lucky to have had a morning in the snow in summer. The staff were amazing and friendly as well and the pizzas were fantastic. Highly recommend this for a day out in summer.
  • In the winter season while skiing at coronet I feel very good because it is a fully tar sealed road that takes you up to the top and they grit it as well which is good because it is less bumpy:) They have a good range of lifts which access multiple points of the peak, great skiing in back bowls on a good day as well:)) Although the face does not see the most sun as it is facing the same direction the sun faces as midday which can lead to ice on most of the groomed runs. Great after a snowfall but can become “concrete peak” of snow has not fallen in a while:( Lots of parking and a big cafe although I recommend going outside as their is a less crowded deck. Beginner runs all the way to expert. Some hiking your skis unblocked if you want to access back bowls which I definitely recommend of a advanced-expert skier or a intermediate if you can ski steep powder and traverse tight/slightly sketchy lines. Would recommend to a friend. Byeya
  • Fantastic mountain to visit, even in Summer! The roads to the top are fairly easy to drive and the gradient is not too steep but you do end up very high in the mountain, with spectacular views! There are multiple levels of carparks so if you don't feel like heading to the top you can stop at anyone of these areas. I'm grateful this is open to the public with so many mountain bike tracks here.
  • Great place to catch the sunrise 😊🌄 it’s an easy drive up too, not too many sharp turns. I went in summer and saw lots of signposted parking areas that I imagine are perfect for accommodating the peak ski season crowds.
