New lift: The Coronet Express lift needs a new name PICTURE: CORONET PEAK

It might not end up being a Boaty McBoatface situation, but Queenstowners are still getting to put their two cents in on the moniker for Coronet Peak’s new big-ticket toy.

The NZSki team are keen for the public to vote on a name for the new Coronet Express chondola.

The options are: Wakatipu View Express, Sunrise to Sunset, Peak Express, Good Times Express, and Coronet Express.

The new high-speed Telemix from Leitner Ropeways of Italy combines a six-seat chairlift with gondola cabins.

In winter, the lift will operate predominantly as an express chairlift for 300 people per hour, at 5.0 metres/sec.

In summer the chairs will be dedicated to mountain bikers, and gondola cabins will be incorporated for sightseers.

The new chondola was revealed by by NZSki.

To vote on the name, head over to the Coronet Peak Facebook page before next Wednesday.
