About The Remarkables

Situated high in The Remarkables mountain range and surrounded by craggy peaks, The Remarkables Ski Resort provides a spectacular, true alpine environment. Extending over 700 hectares of reserve land, there’s 220 skiable hectares accessed by three quad chairs within three sunny, wide open bowls. From the first timer through to those who like to be challenged by narrow chutes, rock drops and off-piste powder, The Remarkables Ski Resort is all about fun, families, freestyle and the love of the big mountain environment.

The Remarkables Ski Area

This is a family friendly ski field in Queenstown. The base facilities are very well designed, clean and user friendly. The cafe is great serving a good range of cooked food. Expect a bit more expansive food as it’s up on a mountain. Recommend you take the ski bus up so you can enjoy the view along the way. The drivers are always funny and helpful. The staff are friendly and helpful.
Awesome experience at the remarks.

Our first day was a powder day which was the best day we had in NZ.

Great slopes for anyone beginning or for anyone more advanced.

Would recommend this ski field to anyone wanting a ski or board.
First of all, I really enjoyed skiing in this ski resort, especially it's my first time coming here. I stayed at the beginners area most of the time but I still find this very exciting! The only negative thing about this experience is that I lost my wallet which has my passport and money. I reported to the guest service centre at the mountain and at CBD snow centre. I thought it would be lost forever since I might have lost it when I was skiing so I had to return to Australia without a passport. Thankfully, about one week after I left Queenstown, they contacted me saying that they have found my wallet which has both the passport and money intact! From here, I really appreciate the staff's effort in finding my wallet and contacting me for that. The guest services were planning to mail my wallet back, but they said they couldn't mail the money back to Australia. It turns out they are happy to deposit the money into the company's account and transfer it into my account. Once again, I want to thank them for the amount of effort they have put! :) I would totally recommend coming here and if you lost something in the ski resort (hopefully no one will experience anything like me), I would guarantee that they can find it for you!
