There are many things you'll need to ski or snowboard Coronet Peak, including equipment, clothing, and more. If you have everything you need, you'll be fine, but if you don't have anything or only some of it, you'll need to rent.

Don't worry, there are plenty of rental shops in Queenstown that cater to those who want to enjoy Queenstown skiing and more in the winter. There are two main ways to rent Queenstown ski lifts, equipment, and clothing.

  • Rent it all at Coronet Peak Ski Area
  • Rent from a rental shop in central Queenstown

I walked into a rental shop in the center of Queenstown and asked, and was told that ski or snowboard equipment would cost about $22, a round-trip shuttle bus to the ski area would cost about $42, a lift pass would cost about $169, and a beginner ski package would cost about $214.

I also looked online to see if there were any websites for renting Queenstown ski equipment and more. I found a website called Info&snowis the value.

The website itself is uncluttered, and it's nice to be able to choose between different packages: bus only, bus+lift pass, bus+lift pass+lessons, etc.

Assuming you have nothing, a Coronet Peak Queenstown ski lift pass, gear, and clothing will cost you $322 per adult.

  • Equipment: skis, boots and poles or snowboards, boots
  • Apparel: jackets, pants, gloves, goggles, and helmets

If you don't have your own vehicle Round-trip busesto get there. To book a bus, you can use the link below. It costs $45 for an adult and $35 for a child. It seems like it's really expensive to go without any ski or snowboard equipment.

I used to love snowboarding when I was in Korea, so I had a season pass and went there a lot, but I've lost all the clothes I bought and more.

I'm wasting my money and looking at the ski slopes. Now let's take a look at renting ski equipment through the Coronet Peak website.

Coronet Peak Gear Clothing Rental Prices

On the Winter shop page, click the Rentals menuwhere we can reserve equipment and clothing. Equipment rental costs $65 and jacket and pants rental costs $45 ($25 for one side only). Helmets are included in the equipment rental, but unfortunately goggles and gloves are not.

It is possible to ski or snowboard without goggles and gloves, but I don't think it would be comfortable. Coronet Peak says they are available for purchase, so keep that in mind when deciding whether to make a reservation at Coronet Peak or use the rental shops in the center of town.

4) Total cost to ski Coronet Peak

Assuming you came to Queenstown to ski, and you didn't bring anything with you, here's your total cost (adult).

  • Weekday Pass (superpass): $165
  • Round-trip bus reservation: $30
  • Ski or snowboard equipment reservation: $65
  • Jacket, pants: $ 45
  • Goggles and gloves

Without goggles and gloves, it costs $305 (about $240). Of course, if you need to buy goggles and gloves, it will be more than that. The Info&snow mentioned above seems to be a bit cheaper than the $367, but the price of goggles and gloves will be a factor.

Many of the rental shops in the center of town offer goggles and even gloves, but you'll need to pack all your gear and clothing when you leave the center of town.

However, if you rent at Coronet Peak, the advantage of being able to take the bus back and forth without your luggage may be a trade-off. We hope you'll consider this when making your decision.


Today we've covered lift passes, equipment, clothing, and bus bookings at Coronet Peak, among other Queenstown ski areas, as well as prices and how to book a bus. If you're traveling from Korea, you probably won't want to bring your own equipment unless you're really into skiing or snowboarding.

If this is the case, please use the local ski area or rental shop to ensure you have a great experience in Queenstown. Please note that the information above was obtained from the Coronet Peak website and is subject to change due to my error and the Coronet Peak company.
