Day 9 – Queenstown

new zealand skiing

Chelsea and Chloe had a ball skiing – they picked it up faster than the adults

Today we skied Coronet Peak, up early and off to get organised. The younger children (under 5`s) were able to attend their creche from 9.00am, allowing the adults a full day of skiing.

Hire the ski gear for children on the mountain, less to carry. Don;t forget to ask for hte starter pack for your first day which basically gives you cheaper hire of skis boots and poles when buying the chair lift passes from Queenstown Ski Junction Corner

The Creche had their own ski area and the 4 year olds and under loved it

Creche facilities were excellent, they had their own little ski field to learn on and the flexibility of having the indoors for playing etc.  The older children attended their lesson with the same age group from 9.30 till 4.30 and included all meals and tuition. The girls had a private lesson, a good option if there are a few of you.  Lessons go for about an hour and then you can take time to practice the new skills or attend another lesson.

Great fun with the boys off on their own exploring the black runs. The rest of us were just happy to spend the afternoon on the beginners slopes. Another day on the slopes would have been fantastic giving us the chance to build on the skills we had learnt.  The kids loved skiing and were super keen to go back for more, definately allow for at least 2 days skiing if the itinery allows.
