“Beautiful and Worthwhile”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

This was my first time skiing and I had an amazing experience. Since we had no experience whatsoever, we booked a half day lesson package. The instructor was great and she was very helpful. By the end of our lesson, all of us could ski on the beginner slopes and we mastered the basics in skiing. I'm not sure if this was just our luck but the snow itself was really nice and powdery and it made it easy for beginners to learn at this place. The only downside to this place is the drive up to the ski fields, which was very scary and steep. But even then, they have people monitoring the cars between chaining areas. Our wheels got stuck in snow at one point and one of their employees helped us out and we were good to go in no time.

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.

“Great Mix of Trails”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

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!!!!!!!!!!

“Great on a good day. Well made terrain park.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

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.
