Our jam-packed 75th programme boasts a full lineup of nostalgic and glamorous events from August 17 to 21. The festivities kick off with a bang on Wednesday 17 – quite literally with roots & reggae band Katchafire, a night ski party and a cracking fireworks display.
For those who worked at Coronet Peak over the years, this is all about catching up with old faces, sharing stories and reminiscing about all the good times experienced over the years on the mountain and downtown.

This event is now sold out.

To the winners go all the spoils, a total of $5000 in cash generously sponsored by Torpedo 7. Event divisions are by gender.
Time to take your antique planks off the wall and put them back to work, testing your skills in the Straight Skis Race. To ensure entrants are unable to benefit from the lavish side cuts of modern ski design, your skis must hail from before 1995.
