Surrounding Queenstown are two great New Zealand ski resorts, Coronet Peak and The Remarkables. This is where Snow Trainers run their Queenstown training courses and here’s why:

Coronet Peak

Coronet Peak is the closest ski area to Queenstown and is Snow Trainers’ home base. Its steeps, bowls, and rolling terrain is easily accessible and makes for some of the most fun you can have. With extensive snowmaking facilities, high speed 4 and 6 person chairlifts, great teaching areas, and night skiing it’s a great place to ski, ride, and learn to instruct!
