Coronet Peak Ski Lifts & Lift Passes

Coronet Peak’s 280 hectare ski area is adequately served by seven efficient, modern ski lifts including three chairlifts, two of which are high-speed, three magic carpets and a T-bar. Coronet Peak’s ski lift capacity is 6,900 riders per hour and lift queues are not a problem.

Coronet Peak Ski Lifts

The Coronet Express quad chair is the focal point of Coronet Peak’s ski lift system. Located directly in front of the base building, the lift accesses the ski resort’s 1,649 metre summit, providing access to challenging bowls and off-piste skiing, as well as a number of intermediate runs. From the top of the quad, skiers and boarders can access any of the ski area’s other six lifts.

The six-seater Greengates Express chairlift serves a mixture of advanced and intermediate pistes. The construction of this high-speed chair has helped reduce the strain on the Coronet Express chair, and has opened up an area of terrain that was previously only accessible to advanced skiers.

The Rocky Gully T-bar is a useful feature of Coronet Peak’s lift system, serving the enjoyable but challenging Race Training track and Powder Run, as well as providing a means of getting back up the mountain for visitors to Heidi’s Hut.

There are also three magic carpets which serve the region’s ‘slow area’, including the 24-metre Sun Kid magic carpet installed in time for the 2009/10 season, enabling children and beginners to find their feet.

The ski lift system officially opens at 9am each morning, though enthusiastic skiers may wish to buy a First Tracks lift pass, allowing them to head up the Coronet Express chair an hour before the lifts open to the public.
