The Remarkables Ski Resort is a New Zealand ski field located on the South Island about 45 minutes away from Queenstown. The Remarkables Ski Resort is situated within The Remarkables mountain range that towers over the southeastern shores of Lake Wakatipu. The Remarkables contain some of the most photographed peaks in New Zealand.

The Remarkables Ski Resort caters to all ability levels and is known for its friendly relaxed atmosphere and beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and Lake Wakatipu down below. The Remarkables is home to wide open bowls, fantastic terrain parks, and great snow. The resort features updated lifts and facilities. 


The Remarkables Ski Area is made up of three sunny, sheltered bowls framed by towering peaks. The resort is a great place for families and those looking for some freestyle terrain. For the more adventurous skier, great terrain is accessed via a short hike to some steep chutes and wide open faces. For long uncrowded runs, check out the Homeward Runs serviced by the Homeward Shuttle.

The Remarkables also offers plenty of beginner areas that are wide open and excluded from some of the more advanced terrain. Intermediate riders looking for freestyle terrain should head over to Serpentine, Upper Gallery, and Lower Gallery for some excellent natural features.


When lunch is calling stop by The Remarkables Cafe to re -fuel. The Cafe has expansive decks that overlook the amazing alpine views of Coronet Peak and the Wakatipu Basin.

The Remarkables offers ski and snowboard school for children of all ages. The Skiwiland Early Learning Centre and the Kea Club provides fun activities in a safe environment. It is a great way for children to learn how to ski or snowboard while making friends on the mountain. All children 10 years and under get access to a free lift ticket.
