I am not a skier ( I can imagine the sound of my bones breaking) but have travelled up to the Remarkables Ski Area in summer. The view is amazing to say the least. The road zig zags up and up and you will find yourself stopping the car to see the wonderful view, only to find it surpassed a... More

Good beginner area and good easy blue runs. Also has a good terrain park which can be seen from the chairlift for added amusement. Access roads are pretty easy to drive up and if snow chains are actually required, they have assistants to help you put them on.....which is quietly brilliant

Stunning views, nice variety of terrain, something for everyone. We were lucky with fresh snow. Enjoyed this ski mountain much more than Coronet Peak. We are from North America, so for us this mountain was a bit limited in area, but we had a wonderful ski day and enjoyed the facilities. The cafe offered a nice variety, tasty, pricy.

This is my regular field for a reason. The new Curvy basin chairlift gets you up fast. So great first runs. Staff are way more laid back and cooler than their other field. Like who wants a Nazi-NZSki officer? Better Park & jumps. the New Building is great. Road is sealed 1/3 of way up but as im a 4WDer... More

This place is amazing and the drive there is great and picturesque. The ski gear hire is a bit on the expensive side, however, its great quality stuff. I recommend getting lessons. I regret all those falls. My only issue is they dont allow for tabogining which makes it hard for people who cant snowboard or ski.

As beginner skiers it was important for us to have our own space for starting out. The lessons we purchased were well worth the money. The canteen area as well as ski runs for beginners were all fantastic with additional beautiful scenery.

In June/July I suspect that most or if not all the travellers come to Queenstown to seriously shred some power on the world class facilities offered here. The remarks is my favourite mountain to ski on. Following the curvy basin lift last year, terrain is now even more accessible. Green runs are good and in some places can be a... More

The Remarkables are another world class ski field with views that are breath taking and a setting that is majestic. From the drive in to the main chair lift there is a vista that will have you in awe and the facilities are now world class after a refurb.
