  • Great slopes. Staff were really helpful, the runs were set up for beginners to advanced. Great place to learn or leave the learners behind.
  • I didn't go up here when the building was open. My visit was to walk the track upto Lake Alta. Beautiful views and crystal clear Lake. Best seen when it's snowy. There is a clean toilet in the car park! Well done.
  • Great for families and the experienced. Fresh powder is not always to hand, but the runs are fun, varied and the base camp is well equipped.
  • Fantastic place for skiing and snowboarding. Easy to get there by bus, equipment can be rented right at the mountain station. I had almost no wait at all of the lift stations.
  • New facilities. Very well maintained, very clean toilets, good coffee. Good hire equipment, with staff happy to help fit it. Beginners magic carpet lift very close to the cafe building and there is a wide beginners area. Only four chair lifts and there isn't a huge range of runs for intermediate skiers. Great road up to field with fabulous views. Ski field is in a bowl and weather can be quite different from Coronet Peak.
