The big mountain experience awaits you at The Remarkables. Get that feeling of pure freedom as you drop into sun-soaked bowls and world-renowned chutes. You will also take in the spectacular views across the Queenstown valley and beyond.
Featuring New Zealand’s first-ever double see-through lift tunnel in the learner’s area, and brand new Sugar’s lift in 2020, The Remarkables is a short 40-minute drive from downtown Queenstown and is a family favourite where kids five and under ski for free.

Great afternoon sun on the deck brings out the European in everyone, and with 1,943 metres of elevation and 357 metres of vertical, there’s never a shortage of fun for young and old.
