Coronet Peak Beginner Skiing

There’s only one obvious place where beginners will want to head for at Coronet Peak – Meadows, the large area to the skiers’ left near the base area.

Coronet Peak’s Meadows area consists of a beginners’ tow rope, two magic carpets (one of which is claimed to be the second longest in the world at 146m) and the slow Meadows double chair serving runs like The Big Easy.

Just 15 per cent of Coronet Peak’s terrain is classified as suitable for beginners, who will have to make the most of the Meadows area as progression up the mountain requires a readiness to tackle blue runs.

Happily, there are some gentle intermediate runs for beginners to progress onto. The M1 is populated with inexperienced skiers and ski school groups, while the Easy Rider run to the left of the Rocky Gully T-bar is as gentle as the name suggests. There are also numerous slow zones to help ease beginners onto the mountain.
