Leading global hospitality management company, Swiss-Belhotel International, is welcoming skiers and snowboarders to its Swiss-Belresort Coronet Peak in Queenstown, located in the heart of one of the first areas in New Zealand to open its trails this year.
Ski season officially started on the 11th June on Coronet Peak’s legendary trails and will run to the end of September. As the closest hotel to the mountain, pre-season bookings at Swiss-Belresort Coronet Peak have been robust prompting the hotel’s General Manager, Grant Gaskin, to advise snow lovers to book their accommodation early in order to avoid disappointment.
“People tend to have a short lead time for bookings on ski trips and naturally their main focus is on great skiing. Experience tells us it’s also important for skiers to make sure their hotel is sorted out well in advance of the trip, especially in popular destinations like Coronet Peak,” said Mr. Gaskin.
Coronet Peak ski area is one of New Zealand’s most exhilirating and diverse ski resort destinations with a choice of exciting adventures for everyone from juniors and first timers to experts and adrenaline junkies. The peak itself rises to 1,649 metres and offers 280 skiable acres including two terrain parks.
The longest run extends an impressive 2.4 kms and the slopes can be accessed using one of four learner conveyor lifts, two high speed quad chairs, one siz-seater express chair, or a T-Bar.
Guests that stay at Swiss-Belresort Coronet Peak enjoy an appealing combination of comforts and benefits. The 3-star resort offers 75 guest rooms with private bathrooms and is located just 20 minutes from the Coronet Peak Ski fields. A regular complimentary shuttlebus is provided to and from the mountain on a planned daily schedule.
“Coronet Peak is a seven-days-a-week destination with machine groomed ski runs and a whole host of adventures, including night skiing in Fridays and Saturdays. Thanks to our superb location and facilities, Swiss-Belresort Coronet Peak is a natural first choice for snow seekers looking to make the most of the area’s exceptional recreational opportunities,” added Mr Gaskin.
As a ski season opening special offer the Swiss-Belresort Coronet Peak is offering a special rate of NZ$135 per room, including complimentary shuttle bus to and from Coronet Peak Ski Fields and 1,000 Air Asia points per night.
