Hit the slopes these holidays
Make the most of the epic snow on the Queenstown mountains these school holidays. It has been a bumper start to the season and right now conditions up at Coronet Peak and The Remarkables couldn’t be better. At the Remarkables kids 10 years and under get free day lift passes and at Coronet Peak kids 6 years and under get free day lift passes. There is plenty to keep the kids entertained through the holidays as well. Our mascots Spike the Kiwi and Shred the Kea get out on the snow most days during the holidays. For kids who like to have a go in the terrain park the Remarkables is hosting the first of its Streets Mini Shred series this Sunday. This is a free event for kids 16 years and under and there are a load of cool prizes and giveaways for everyone who enters. The focus is on participation and having fun which makes it one of the more popular kids events on the mountain. At Coronet Peak the kids day out is a popular day on the mountain. On Sunday July 28 the Wonky Donkey man will be entertaining the kids at the base building and there will be free facepainting plus lots of games in the snow. This is a free event for the kids to participate in so bring them up for some fun in the snow. Of course if you want to try something really different night skiing on Friday and Saturday nights is a great we to entertain the whole family. The atmosphere at night is totally different thanks to the live music and the braziers which people huddle around on the deck. Play around in the snow and then head in for a pizza and a drink. Nightskiing is on every Friday and Saturday, weather permitting, from 4pm – 9pm. For more information go to www.nzski.com.
