For newbies and beginners this is a great place to start. Goto SKI NZ and book everything inc lessons (at least 2). You'll arrive on the mountain after 45-60 minutes in a bus (sometimes the driver will give a good local history lesson - enjoyed) and you'll be shepherded into getting all your gear and taught how to ski!!

Another amazing Queenstown ski area! "The Remarks" is my favorite. Great open bowl type skiing! Vast terrian... Lots of off piste! Lots of upgrades happening up there at the moment, so it will only get better!

This ski field feels a bit like europe, just not very big. Good facilities and great training for the beginners. The bus trip up the mountain is unbelievable, try and sit at front of bus and you will get a view that won't let you down

I'd never Snowboarded before, but whilst on the Kiwi experience I had my first ever chance to do it. I had booked a full day of lessons, however after one morning felt confident to join the rest of our tour group on the mountain. Utterly incredible! I've genuinely never enjoyed such a thrill doing anything else. Highly recommend anyone, whether... More

I had a great day at the Remarkables Ski Area. It hadn't snowed in 14 days, but the area is well maintained and because it is above the tree line, for a small area, there is a lot of acreage to ride. This is a great area to learn or to get your legs at the beginning of the season.... More

We arrived at the ticket counter at almost the last minute for the last bus ride to the Remarkables. The lady at the ticket counter was very helpful. The bus driver was excellent and friendly. We did not ski but enjoyed the beautiful view up on the Remarkables.

I got 1 refresher lesson and was straight back into it... you have every type of run and terrain you need from green to black, jumps and rails etc. I also took a friend along who had never... More

even though I buy my seasons pass here every year the provide the worst service I have ever seen on a ski field. When there is minimum snow coverage you're like to hit a rock which happened fair enough but when you ask the repair shop to hold a knife for one second to cut of that curl of p-tex... More
