This mountain is terrible with bad snow or bad weather. The mountain isn't as well maintained as Cornet Peak where they make a lot of man-made-snow to keep the slopes descent.

Hubby did some skiing, I tried, failed - Ha Ha. Son and partner did snowboarding lessons, was fun watching, but you do need to be fit and have good balance. As beginners, was disappointing couldn't use the chair lift, only experienced were allowed. The food not too bad. The weather turned and became a blizzard so we left. However, we... More

If you have a car this is a great drive to take. The views are amazing and when you reach the top there are lots of walks you can choose to take. Well worth the drive - around 20 minutes to get to the top.

With many areas to learn how to tackle the snow with snowboard hire and ski hire and many other activities - this place produced all the goods!

Great fun, and the amenaties are good. You can purchade ski gear before going ip the mountains or get it up there what ever suits best. There are ski travelators and a nice area to have lunch and buy some hot dtinks in between skining.

We decided to do the drive up to the ski resort based upon the recommendation in a travel book we had. At first, We weren't sure because most of the 13k drive is on a windy and steep (but wide) gravel road. However, We are glad We did, the views were spectacular (it was an amazingly clear day). We could... More

I went to remarkables looking for some good powder and out of bounds ski. I was dissapointed with the slopes, for they weren't that steep; because it isn't very high,the snow is not that dry and a bit heavy, not good powder and not great out of bounds; you have to look hard for the good out of bounds, unless...

This can be an option if weather conditions don't suit other field. Long drive up a partly dirt road. The road can get snowed in. Only a small base building but all necessary facilities. Great learners area out the front with magic carpets for the kids. Only one main chairlift plus some old style pommels.

Great ski field with amazing free ride opportunities as well as a decent park. The new base building has several different food options. Easy to get to from Queenstown but not as close as Coronet (concrete) peak.
