If you are looking for great walking or mountain bike tracks during the summer try Coronet Peak Ski field at Queenstown.
We weren’t organised for biking that day so we decided to walk. We got the ski lift to the top and took in the spectacular views. There are several tracks from the top or you can just have a walk around the area. We explored the area, had a picnic lunch and then walked down the mountain. The tracks were very good, the views amazing!
Bike taxis around town will offer regular taxi connections from Queenstown to Coronet Peak, and free onsite parking is available all summer for drivers.
Tickets for adults range from $69 for a half day, $89 for a full day, $199 for a three-day and $399 for a season pass along with a full range of discounted children’s passes. 2015 NZSki winter season pass holders can purchase the season pass for a discounted rate of $299 for adults and just $149 for children.
Tickets can be purchased up until December 19 from NZSKI head office, Level 1, The Station Building on Duke Street, Queenstown and on the mountain at Coronet Peak from then on.
Non-biking spectators can ride to the top of Coronet Peak for $15 (adult) or $10 (child) single ticket, or hikers can hop off at the top, take in the views and enjoy a leisurely walk down the mountain.
Passes can be purchased daily from the Sub-Station on the deck at Coronet Peak.
