Had an amazing week in Queenstown and to finish off my travels and the season I had 3 days on the slopes. 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

It was a good ski field but not my favourite. Still it was a great day of skiing and it is worth a visit

Good for beginners and families - not so much for intermediates. Food court and facilities aren't enough for the people admitted per day. Drive up is a little scary - but the view is sooo worth it!

Went there on the last day of the season, mts full of snow and able to take good pictures of blue sky on top and white on the bottom of photos. Can't comment on skiing as I'm not a friend of skiing. The building and facilities are not as modernised as Coronet Peak. Travelling up and down the mts by... More

We had a week skiing at the two Queenstown ski fields. The Remarkables was my favourite. There are plenty of runs and a good range of difficulties. I am a blue run skier and my partner is black run and we both had plenty of runs to keep us busy. The road up is an adventure in itself. Lucky when... More

The baby park with rails and jumps and the corkscrew tunnel made this ski area lots of fun for the whole family.

We were beginners on the slopes. Great location. Few windy days, but once the weather improved we all had a fantastic time. Look forward to seeing the new reservations when we hopefully come back next year

Went on one of the busiest days of the season, but the staff were very welcoming. We had two young children with us so they fast tracked us to the top carpark to make room for us. Very good service. New Curvey Basin very good too.
