Ski holiday for family of four in mid to late August 2019

Hi

Starting to look at what is around in regards to accomodation. Keen to ski with our 9 and 11 yr olds. Looking at either remarkable or coronet peak. Any recommendations on where to stay mid price range so we can get to ski fields easily each day

Hi,

Coronet Peak is about a half hours drive from Queenstown and The Remarks about 45 min.

With children serviced apartments (full kitchen, two or more bedrooms with bath room and en suite would probably work better than a hotel.

When selecting make sure it's in or adjacent to the CBD with a view over Lake Wakatipu to the Remarks (Google Maps Street View is your friend), parts of Queenstown are very steep which make walking back "interesting" on ice covered slopes and steps after dinner.

With family we always stayed at The Waterfront but I believe it's changed hands now and may be timeshare.

Cheers,

Queenstown, New...

Will you be self driving or taking the ski bus?

If bus, check the bus route and stay somewhere with easy access to it.

If car, you're open to stay anywhere. I currently babysit a family who are for their 2nd extended winter holiday (6weeks last time, 3 months this time!), and they've rented a house in Dalefeild - beautiful countryside seeing, easy access to skifeilds/ Arrowtown/ Queenstown/ airport. ... Check holidayhomes.co.nz Bookabach.com etc

hi, we just stayed at the holiday park with a large family . Great price , easy walk to shops, across from supermarket and not far to get up the mountain.
