Only a short trip from town there's plenty for everyone here. The park is fun and there is terrain for all levels of experience.

I think this is the tenth time we have visited the Remarks and whilst on this trip we also skiied Cardrona and Coronet Peak the Remarks is our favourite with a fantastic mix of intermediate trails to suit various skill levels with some great black runs for day two and later once "the legs" are back :-)

The only down side this time was the road in has been improved considerably since our 2010 visit and the feeling of accomplishment on arrival has diminished.

See you next year!!!!!!!!!!

Handy to Queenstown. Great views. Impressive terrain park with a variety of challenges for different skill levels. Our preteen boys happily snowboarded by themselves and were safe doing so once we familiarised them. Good fun skiing for intermediate skiers with very few skiers on steeper slopes. (Our first day was during bad weather....drizzly, flurries and clouds.....no fun) On a good day The Remarkables makes for a good day.

We were told that the Remarkables is probably the best place for beginners but I would have to disagree. The beginner slopes (magic carpet section) were quite steep and for a first time skier it wasn't the easiest place to master. We went to Coronet Peak the following day to much easier slopes which had much more gradual increases in difficulty. The facilities at the Remarkables were nice but again Coronet's were much better. An iconic place to visit but if you're after a beginners slope I'd suggest this isn't the best choice. Still had a great time here though.
