I spent a whole season in QT last year and frequently went to Coronet Peak for snowboarding. Everyone of course compares whether The Remarks is better(which I think it is). However, Coronet Peak is closer to town and of course has night skiing. Probably my favourite thing about it. There is also an amazing view of all the surrounding mountains... More

Worth the drive up to the peak, it was February so everything was closed as it is only a ski resort but the views are outstanding.

Coronet is a beautiful mountain to ski on, although the pistes are not that extensive compared to Europe.

We had the opportunity to walk to the top and admire the fantastic views , going up using the established bike trials was very easy and well worth the fantastic views available. Very peaceful, mid summer, as the place is deserted!

I a must not one for heights but this was recommended as a must do. I knew we were going up a big mountain by the steep incline and twisty road and that had me nervous. The view when u get to the top is amazing but then we had to drive back down and I have never been more... More

The windy, steep road takes you almost to the top of Coronet Peak, from where a 180º-view is laid out below like a tapestry of breathtaking beauty: hillocks covered in tussock grass whipped by the fierce winds at your feet, green and golden fields on the bottom of the valley, green fields and abodes reminiscent of the Shire or poplar...

This is a ski resort, but well worth a drive to the top even in summer as the views as you look out over the countryside are breathtaking.
