The car ride up the winding mountain is worth it once you rach your destination. A combination of off tracks and sweeping views make this my favourite ski field in QT. Facilities are what you expect from a ski resort but that's not what you're there for, so who cares as long as the rides are good!

Snow boarded here for a couple of days in July. One windy day and one blue bird day. Busy but not crazy, good learning mountain on the magic carpet. Caters for both learners and experiences boarders/skiiers. Park with jumps also. Only 3 ski lifts though.

Great place to learn how to ski. Scenery is beautiful and the free shuttle pickup from the car park is great service. Gets extremely busy so best you arrive early

Take snow tyres in heavy snow, the road has a very steep gradient, you lose traction. See the beautiful native parrot, the kea flying against the sky up high here, very majestic... You get to see the colours under the wing, not usually seen. But be careful they like to chew car window and door rubber... We went on the... More

No snow to speak of this trip but would obviously be great in the thick of it. The vistor centre is well set up to hire gear and also for feeding all the hungry hords. Lovely views.

This is a pretty good ski resort, but really needs Shadow Basin to be open to provide some steeper terrain. Mainly basin is green to blue style runs, Shadow Basin opens up some black terrain.

The Remarkables ski field is 45 minutes out of Queenstown and easily accessible by bus transfer, which you can arrange to pick you up from your hotel. They tarsealed the access road just last month, making it much safer and easier to traverse. Good news, because that used to be a pretty hairy ride in bad conditions. This is a... More

This place is great if you like to ice skate. This was the second (and last) time I have been to the remarkables. Staff in rentals have no idea what they are doing and the gear is in desperate need of updating - I had to return three consecutive pairs of snowboard boots as the inner boot laces were stripped...

Getting on and off the mountain was easy with the ability to catch rolling transfers up and down the mountain. Ski rental procedures were easy to follow and hiring lockers was accessible. Would be good if additional lockers were available upstairs so we didn't have to go downstairs to access bags. There is a good range of food and even... More
