The Remarkables was my favourite ski destination as I visited on the first day of its grand opening in June 2015. The snow was beautiful, powdery and soft; making falling not nearly as painful. The mountains were given their name because of the "remarkable" way that they both faced directly North and South. An incredible place that must be visited... More

Visited end of season so would be unfair to say quality a bit smaller than the Alps but worth a visit

I love the remarkables, it is great for all levels of skier, but has more advanced runs. you must visit this, particularly after a fresh dump of snow.

If you like a bit of downhill mountain biking, over summer you can shuttle, or if you are keen, bike up to a downhill track, if you drive/bike until you get to the cattle stop, just after it on the right side is where it starts. Enjoy!

I was new at the whole ski situation and the begginers class was really helpful. On the other hand I found the snowboard basic class too advanced and difficult but it is just my perception as some friends enjoyed it. I loved the cafeteria and the views from it. The perfect place in between ski hours. It is not too... More

We took a private bus up to the ski fields which was about 1 hr from Queenstown. Trip was beautiful - loads of snow capped mountains. We hired gear from the mountain but would recommend NOT to do that - the lines were ridiculously long and took us well over 1 hr to get all our ski passes and gear.... More

The drive up was great. It took a long time but worth it. The views from up the top were amazing to say the least

You need to come up here to appreciate the absolute superb views of the area even if you are not a skier . It started to snow heavily before we had tired of looking across the valley and getting our fill of the mountains,....aptly named!!!

This is my favorite ski field, perfect location from town not too far. It has an awesome ice bar at the top of the first ski lift made out of the snow. Runs are fun and challenging. Ski instructors are awesome and they have great programs for children. Excellent customer service.
