Visitor Reviews of Coronet Peak

Mia from New Zealand writes:

A great resort for beginners, intermediates and experts. It would be even better if the T-bar was replaced with a chair lift to spread people out on the mountain! The only other down side is the steps up to the snow from the base building. It is difficult for children to carry skis up and down stairs.
