August is usually the best and safest time to go but you can still get skunked. I think you would probably like Cardrona more, good field especially for beginner/intermediates, higher and better snow quality than Coronet Peak. Venture over to TC if you want more challenge.Coronet turns into a skate park mid-afternoon
Never skiied in NZ, what sort of snow conditions should I expect in August?
