The mountain was truly awesome. Love the new facilities and everything on the mountain was just easy... there are tons of great runs and park areas. Worth a lot more visits..

The Remarkables is by far the best place to go for a snow trip in Queenstown. Plenty of different runs to choose from, and plenty of room despite how busy it can get. If you make the trek up to the lookout at the top of the Shadow Basin lift, you will be rewarded with spectacular views of the area.... More

Remakables Skiing Queenstown is very good for beginner skiers. The slopes are gentle and it has a great beginner area. For the Park Rats there is a great terrain park call Park Life with progressive jumps and rails from beginners to experts. When the snow is good Remarkables offers some really good off piste skiing. When the snow is bad... More

As a Northern Hemisphere resident, I was happy to ski in August. I think the condition was a little late in season/spring skiing ish, and the area is not very big and there aren't a lot of steep stuff, but I was just happy to be skiing in August when it was 95 degrees back home.

Only went to Remarkables and Cardrona whilst we were over there but Cardrona is so much better. There is way more variety on the slopes, more lifts and larger area to ski at Cardrona. Spend the extra time to get to Cardrona over The Remarkables. It's worth it. The skiing is always fun but Cardrona offers way more of it.

I spend three days in Remarkables and love it. The snow was and the weather was great. The ski conditions were excellent. Already miss it and want to go back there again.

this was my 3rd time in Queenstown and I always enjoy coming to the Remarkables. Its a great place to get started with skiing or snowboarding but it also has tracks for all other levels. the fun park is always well looked after and the queues at the lifts are not as crowded as I know it from Europe.

Planning on driving here? Think it'll be too steep? Worried about a lack of barriers? Worried there isn't enough beginner areas? Worry not for this ski field is awesome. The slopes are wonderfully maintained and there are less schools getting in your way here. The travel up isn't bad at all. it's sealed most of the way and where it's... More
