It’s All Black at Queenstown’s Coronet Peak

It’s All Black at Queenstown’s Coronet Peak

It’s looking All Black and All White up at Queenstown’s Coronet Peak.


With just a few days left to lap up superb sun-soaked days on soft springy snow these school holidays, the mountain’s upping the ante for its final weekend this Saturday and Sunday (Oct 3 and 4).

In support of our boys in black, a selection of Coronet Peak’s rental skis are now proudly ‘all black’ from tip to tail. The all black skis will be available at the bottom of the Coronet Express chairlift for guests to ski a run or two this Saturday (October 3).

As the AB’s play live against Georgia from 8am, the match will be shown on the big screen with a special ‘All Blacks Breakfast’ on offer for $15 including a coffee.

The all black skis proudly bear the distinctive Silver Fern at their tip, giving skiers the perfect photo opportunity for what’s bound to be a celebratory day on the snow.

Ski area manager Ross Copland says there’s no reason to miss out on a final ‘snow hit’ this week.

“It’s been a cracker of a season and we’ve smashed our previous snowfall record so we’re going out on a high,” he says. “It’s a long countdown to next year.”

Sunday’s closing day celebrations will include a dress-up Beach Party and Pond Skim with all welcome to enter or come along to watch the fun.

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal. This is because it is going to be implemented earlier and faster, including retrospective rebates from April 2023. More

Green Party: Petition To Save Oil & Gas Ban

“The new Government’s plan to expand oil and gas exploration is as dangerous as it is unscientific. Whatever you think about the new government, there is simply no mandate to trash the climate. We need to come together to stop them,” says James Shaw. More

PSA: MFAT Must Reverse Decision To Remove Te Reo

MFAT's decision to remove te reo from correspondence before new Ministers are sworn in risks undermining the important progress the public sector has made in honouring te Tiriti. "We are very disappointed in what is a backward decision - it simply seems to be a Ministry bowing to the racist rhetoric we heard on the election campaign trail," says Marcia Puru. More
