This was our first time skiing and the one-day program offered at the Remarkables was perfect for us. Despite it being very busy, we were able to listen to our instructor comfortably and felt much more confident on the slopes by the end of the day. We found it difficult to get a seat inside for lunch, so had to... More

Came here in January (Summer), luckily still got to see some snow on the ground. Very cold and the air is thinner due to the higher altitude.

The drive up to the Remarkables is stunning. The road is pretty stony after about 2km. It took around 20 mins to drive to the top where the ski lift starts. Easy walk to follow as you walk under the ski lift. Some parts are quite steep but well worth the effort. There is a crystal blue lake at the... More

My 2nd time to a ski resort although I can't skiing. The way up is partly gravel, but the view is remarkable. They provide free shuttles to bring you to the top from the parking lot. It's very crowded since we came right at the beginning of the snow season. So even though they have a huge canteen and skiing... More

With a few hours to kill before hotel check in, we decided to take a drive up to the Remarkables Ski Area, and very pleased that we did! The narrow (in parts gravel) road winds up around the mountain and gives you some spectacular views of Queenstown along the way. When we got up to the ski area we decided... More

My second favourite ski field in the Queenstown Area. The views are incredible and I love it up there. In Summer it's still nice to go up there for the views, or for the odd occasion if there's a summer snow fall then you could enjoy the snow in mid Summer.

Nice small ski area 15min driving from Queenstown with amazing views over the Southern Alps. On clear days you can enjoy views of Mt. Aspiring and Mt. Cook. Obviously, some Lord of the rings scenes were filmed there.
