This resort should almost be considered a heritage site. It is the first of its kind in New Zealand and is bigger and better now, more than fifty three years following its construction. Coronet Peak is massive and offers a large number of trails to choose from. Reaching this incredible locale is an easy task since it is located a mere thirty minutes away from Queenstown.

If you're interested in heading out on a snowbound adventure with the entire family, then the Lake Mountain Resort is definitely the place for you. Despite much of the resort being consumed by the Black Saturday bushfires, Lake Mountain has made a clever comeback with more than nine kilometres worth of trails being reopened. The resort is located about a hundred kilometres away from the famed city of Melbourne, and your visit to the park might even contribute to aiding the local economy after the damage suffered from the bushfires. The only downside to this incredible snow-centric resort is that there isn't actually a lake to be found, despite its name.
