New Zealand Ski

the remarkables

Perfect for beginners, youth and entire families, the north-facing slopes of The Remarkables are home to versatile terrain, fantastic learning facilities and fun for all ages.

In 2015 The Remarkables opened its new base building. This is stage two of a redevelopment project which in 2014 year saw the 1.2km, six seater Curvey Basin chairlift installed, the learners' area expanded and a bigger car park.    Over the summer of 2015-16 sealing of the road will continue, to the 10 km mark.  So there is even more to explore in the 2016 New Zealand ski season on The Remarkables.

The base building provides all facilities and is the ideal location for overseeing children on nearby learners’ slopes while enjoying refreshments on the sun deck. Just remember there is no accommodation on the slopes at The Remarkables but you have heaps of choices in Queenstown and surrounds.

Fun for the kids starts at the fully licensed Skiwiland Early Learning Centre, progressing to programmes for all ages and abilities from three months to 15 years. There are three terrain parks ranging from beginner to advanced, and a tubing park for fun without skis or board.
