Conferencing & Events in Premier Ski Venues

Coronet Peak & The Remarkables ski areas are the life blood of winter in Queenstown. The ski area and base lodge facilities at both Ski Areas offer a unique venue for functions & events in a spectacular environment, as well as a dramatic backdrop for film crews, and facilities for on-mountain winter teambuilding activities, night skiing group events, and organised Winter Olympics team events.

Our primary business of running New Zealand’s premier ski areas takes precedence for use of these facilities during our winter season, however, outside of operational times and throughout the year, we can offer the use of these facilities by Conference & Incentive Groups and private hire for events such as gala dinners, weddings, and birthday parties. During our winter season we can offer a variety of options for small to medium groups.

The Remarkables

Completed in 2015, this modern & spacious lodge was designed by renowned local architect Michael Wyatt, and Interior Designer Victoria Wilkes, and is set within the stunning location of the Remarkables Mountain Range. The Lodge is a great addition to the Queenstown Venues scene, and available for hire outside of our daily operational winter hours. We can cater for small or large events during summer, and small to medium events during the winter.

The Remarkables restaurant has been designed in “Zones” so each area has a slightly different look and feel, that can be sectioned off with mobile planters, or can remain open plan. The restaurants and bars wrap around the internal service areas creating 360o views of the mountain and down into the valley, meaning there are differing lines of sight throughout the floor. The outdoor deck also wraps around the building , and has glass wind barriers, creating a comfortable outdoor environment. The different zones means this venue is ideal for cocktail functions, Gala Dinners , Buffet & Walk & Fork Style , and casual cotemporary events. The Westend Room is a private medium sized room, which is separate from the café, and has its own access on-to the south deck.

Queenstown Experiences

■ Take a jetboat trip. Designed in New Zealand, the jetboat is now an iconic activity particularly in Queenstown, where there are as many as five different jetboat trips to choose from. All in different locations but all offering the same excitement, speed and the trademark 360° spins.

■ Helicopter with glacier landing. Helicoptering in New Zealand is accessible and cost-effective with some of the most experienced pilots in the world. Queenstown offers some breathtaking flights in and around the Southern Alps which can incorporate glacier and mountain top landings. The best way to really make your group feel special.

■ Winery tour in Gibbston Valley. New Zealand wine has always focussed on the quality end of the market resulting in some fabulous award-winning wineries. Nowhere more so than in the Gibbston Valley near Queenstown, best known for its robust pinot noir and crisp Rieslings. Wine tasting here delivers some great experiences, not only from the wine but also from the stunning scenery and beautiful wineries many of them serving first-class lunches or private dinners.

■ Kiwiana themed dinner with traditional cultural Maori welcome. Really immerse your group into the essence of New Zealand by transforming the dining venue into the flora, fauna and culture of New Zealand. Native foliage, rocks, birdsong and tiki carvings together with traditional and local fare provides a great welcome function.
