The Remarkables

The Remarkables

Across the valley lies The Remarkables, Queenstown’s true alpine ski area. Here the emphasis is very definitely on joining in and having fun, especially if you’re a beginner, intermediate or looking for serious adrenaline.

The Remarkables enjoys three sunny sheltered bowls framed by towering peaks, and is known for its friendly atmosphere and relaxed feel. It’s a great place to learn to ski with easy access to learner runs by an easy to use chairlift. And if you’re ready to sample life on the edge, you’ll find challenging terrain like you’ve never seen before and some of the longest off-piste runs around. Kids are well catered for and kids 10 years and under get a free day lift pass. In fact after a day of fun at Skiwiland or in the creche they may never want to go home again.

When you need to restock your reserves and take a well-earned break, you’ll find a satisfying selection of fresh food and drinks at the self-service cafe plus you can browse for mementoes in the Sno Shop. Or maybe you’d prefer to soak up the rays and watch the playful antics of New Zealand’s cheeky native parrot, the Kea.

Whatever you choose, The Remarkables is the ideal place to make the most of winter’s offerings. For small kids and big kids alike, check out the new tubing park for great fun in the snow!
