Today they’ve confirmed the official opening dates for each resort.
Coronet Peak announced they will be open from June 26, seven days a week including night skiing on Wednesdays and Fridays and First Tracks from Monday July 6. The snow guns will be turned on from June 2 to create a base for the winter ahead.
It’s official, The Remarks will be open from July 4 for two weeks during school holidays then every weekend throughout the season. This may change as alert levels and border openings change, but for now it is a reduced season due to reduced numbers for the Queenstown resorts.

Cantabrians will be pleased to know that Mt Hutt is all seasons go from June 12. The resort will operate Friday to Sunday throughout June, then five days a week from July.
Hutt is traditionally predominantly a domestic market mountain with the majority of skier days sourced from surrounding region including nearby Christchurch. However the inability for some key international staff to enter the country due to border restrictions, means a reduced capacity season for 2020.
