The Remarkables Ski Area
The Remarks is all about FUN! Relaxed, friendly, and high in The Remarkables mountain range, The Remarks is fabulous for kids and families and the natural Queenstown 'home' for big mountain fans and park rats. It's high altitude and north facing slopes make it a fantastic sun trap.
There's a large, wide, gentle beginner area, a snow tubing park that's perfect for non-skiers or the best family fun, a progressive series of terrain parks and tracts of big mountain terrain inside and out of the ski area boundary. First timers can progress happily from conveyor lifts to the novice chair and maybe into the beginner terrain park of Alta Blue. Sugar Bowl is home to an FIS-rated advanced terrain park and the Southern Hemisphere's first Stash, a revolutionary Burton signature freestyle park where big 'names' of freestyle sometimes hang out.
Over in Shadow Basin there are sensational steeps for advanced adn expert skiers and riders. From Sugar and Shado, big mountain skiers and riders can hunt fresh tracks.
Extending over 700 hectares of reserve land, there’s 220 skiable hectares in three sunny bowls accessed by three quad chairs and three surface conveyor lifts and a beginner handle tow.
The Remarkables is a 45-minute drive from Queenstown, or you can take a shuttle from either town or the base of the access road.
The Remarkables is scheduled to open from June 16, 2012 until October.
