Southern Alpine Recreation General Manager - Sales and Marketing David Ovendale said the passes were designed to cater for a variety of people pursuing different experiences on the mountain.

“Coronet Peak is a recreation reserve and its rolling terrain makes for superb mountain biking for all levels of rider. It’s a great way to get people into the mountains and enjoying facilities that prior to the Park’s establishment were only used during winter.

“Elite riders can push themselves to the limit throughout the season while families can enjoy a summer alpine day out taking the chairlift to the top of the mountain to appreciate the stunning alpine scenery and downhill action before gently coasting down the downhill cross country track.

“The beauty is that there’s no need to ride uphill as access back to the top is by the Coronet Express Quad chairlift.”

Queenstown’s top outdoor adventure outfitters Outside Sports will provide a quality mountain bike rental service at the Bike Park base area.

Coronet Peak is hosting several first class mountain biking events this season. The National Mountain Bike series runs from 4 - 6 January 2008, the Vertigo Chain Free Downhill is on 19 January 2008 and the Fat Tyre Brake Burner (six hour endurance race) will take place on 2 February 2008.
