The Remarkables

Remarkables by name, remarkable by nature. It’s not often that a ski area truly lives up to its promise, but people love coming here; whether it’s for family fun, countless off-piste options or dedicated freestyle areas, The Remarkables has something for everyone.

An easy 45 minutes’ drive from central Queenstown and located in the heart of Queenstown’s iconic Remarkables mountain range, the ski area has sunny, North-facing slopes across three natural bowls and some of the best alpine views in the world.

Lift access to 1943m, the mountain receives fantastic natural snow, supported by over 100 snow guns for consistent coverage all season.

You can experience it all in what has become Queenstown’s all-round alpine playground.
