Located 15 miles east of central Queenstown, the truly remarkable Remarkables offer 47 ski and snowboard trails and three terrain parks. Skiers and snowboarders of all levels can be accommodated on The Remarkables' slopes, which are open annually from June to September. Should you choose to ski here, expect to find some of the best mountain views in the area.
While some recent skiers preferred Coronet Peak, overall, past travelers said The Remarkables are worth visiting. And remember, even in the summer, you can still drive or hike to the top to take in The Remarkables' stunning vistas.
To get to The Remarkables, plan on driving or catching the Snowline Express shuttle, which picks up daily during the winter months from 8 to 11:30 a.m. and offers return rides starting at 1:30 p.m. One-day passes cost NZ$20 ($13) per person. For an additional NZ$10, visitors can schedule hotel pickups and drop-offs through the mountain's shuttle service. Three parking lots are also available at The Remarkables for those who decide to drive.
In addition to the mountain's slopes, you will find childcare facilities, a ski and snowboard shop with equipment rentals and lockers for ski gear. A cafe, coffee shop, ice bar and restaurant are available as well. Lift tickets start at NZ$99 ($66.50) per adult and NZ$52 ($35) for children between 7 and 17. Kids 6 and younger ski for free at all Queenstown ski slopes. Ski packages with lift tickets, lessons and equipment rentals are also offered. Check out The Remarkables' website to find out more about slope hours, ticket prices and on-site amenities.
