Arrival Day - Your guide will pick you up from Queenstown Airport
Arrive into Queenstown airport at a time that suits you, and your guide will be there to pick you up. You can settle into you accommodation and then depending on your arrival time, you may like to explore the bubbly town or sneak in one of the many activites Queenstown has to offer (Bungy jumping, Jet boating, or perhaps a Gondola ride to take in the views).
Day 2 – Sunday
Please be waiting in the lobby at 7.30am – Coronet Peak (25 minutes)
This morning you will meet your guide who cannot wait to show you the slopes, but firstly we need to pick up rental equipment and a coffee for those who need it. Once we are on the road, it’s just a 25 minute drive to Coronet Peak.
Coronet Peak has a ton of awesome rolling terrain to suit anyone and everyone. Whether you are after long intermediate runs, a gentle learner’s area or a challenge in the back bowls, Coronet Peak has got it. Your guide will make sure everyone is orienteated around the mountain, and skiing or riding the best slopes for them. They can organise any lessons required and they also have a clever ability to time lunch to avoid the crowds!

Your guide will show you how to follow the sun around the resort, by hitting the best slopes at the best times, to get prime conditions! One of New Zealand’s biggest terrain parks sits under the chair lift for great entertainement, or perhap even inspiration!?
Day 4 – Tuesday
Day off snow
Your host gets you sorted no matter what you choose to do, if you want to hit the slopes or experience a heli-ski consider it taken care off. If you want to relax and go your own way that’s fine too.
