Snow falling at three main local Queenstown/Wānaka ski fields

Jul 01, 2024

Overnight snow has brought substantial falls to three local ski fields, with temperatures due to drop later this week.

Here's a summary of conditions at Cardrona, Coronet Peak and The Remarkables as at mid-morning, Monday July 1st.

Cardrona (Main Image and below):


Coronet Peak:

8cm up top and the white stuff keeps on falling! Winter is back. The snow pack is soft and playful, and in some areas you may find a pop up pond skim. The snow on the lower half of the mountain is damp, and sticky. The wind should remain low all day and the freezing level is predicted to continue to drop so hopefully we will also be able to get the snow guns going. Coronet Peak is about to transform back into a winter playground.

The snow conditions will constantly evolve today, so always check back in for the latest report.

A gentle reminder to be careful of our marked and unmarked hazards at the Peak. We ask that you abide by our Snow Responsibility Code on the slopes so that we keep each other safe and continue to have an awesome time out there!

Coronet Peak - Meadows Base


We've now had 17cms at base, & big heavy flakes are continuing to fall!

Currently we have little wind & limited visibility. The forecast is for it to become more wintery with the wind to increase & temperatures to fall, & for the snow level to lower during the day.

All of this may affect lift operations, & will affect the road - all vehicles MUST have chains, know how to fit them & follow the chain calls. As our Roads Crew will be busy managing the road it will not be a Carpool Priority Day.

Tempting as it may be with the new snow, early season conditions still exist so please stick to marked trails.

The weather & conditions will change today so please keep checking here for the latest.

Winter & snow - awesome!!
