The Coro1200 race lets you descend from the top of Coronet Peak in Queenstown NZ to the valley floor, non-stop in one race run. This year, the race took the new Upper Rude Rock track, then the
classic Rude Rock and for the race, the brand new Upper Hot rod just got opened to the racer and finally connected to the finish using Lower Hot Rod. These trails put together make one of the best and probably one of the longest flow trails in the world. Cole Lucas took the win, 2nd Bradley Harris and the run above was from Fabien Cousinié taking 3rd overall and 1st master.
|Incredible job! All of these trails are amazing in their own right but putting them together in a race run is definitely a different ball game, It felt like a mix of Megavalanche and endurance pump track. A big thanks to the QMTC team for putting these awesome events together and a huge thanks to everyone who is behind the creation of all those new trails.—Fabien Cousinié|

Is it possible to ski/snowboard that route in the winter? I recall years ago someone skiing A-Line during our off season.
Coronet is a really fun ski field though, lots of lumps and bumps and hidden stashes, and because it's 99% grass you can ski it after about 30cm without worrying about rocks.
