For a first time skier I felt comfortable here. Staff were friendly, even when I lost my ski pass they were very helpful and for a small replacement fee I was able to get a new pass. Food was great just a lot of fun here!

We skied all four fields and the Remarkables was my favorite. There were short queues, all day sun and varied terrain. Lots of room in the newly opened restaurant with superb views in both directions. The only downside is the overpriced food. Will be back next year!

The drive up was a bit intimidating, but amazing and was well worth it. The scenery is spectacular and there is a lot more choice for green or beginner runs, then at Coronet Peak. Restaurant also pleasant with a fire, although food was about what you'd expect for ski fields

Since its upgrade this is by far my favourite ski rsort. The down side was the bus queues were reallY long,we waited well over an hour each way, but were assured this was not normal, they were simply short buses on that day. Once there though the new facilities were fabulous.We hired skis and the service was super fast, friendly... More

As a beginner snowboarding for the first time i found coronet peak easier learning on but that may just be because i stacked it more at remarks. The drive up is way harder and longer than Coronet Peak and it was a lot windier when we were there.

Loved the snow and the trails. The new base building runs smoothly. We visited Coronet and Remarks and found both to be busy but the Remarks seemed to be smooth busy but Coronet was hectic busy. The queues for lifts were not noticeable and everything seemed to run smoothly. We took lessons, my wife absolute beginner and me a little... More

This is a view one must not miss, and these are really remarkable and one cannot miss them as they are evident throughout New Zealand.

As quite new skiers we stuck mainly to alta green for the majority of our visits- this can get quite busy at times as many of the... More
