Great for All Levels of Skier / Snowboarder
The Drive to the top is a thrill ride - scary

Full review

We found Remarkables to be a good spot for all levels of Skiers / Snowboarders. The lifts weren't as busy as at Coronet which meant more time on the snow and less time waiting at the ski lifts. The staff were friendly / helpful and there was a more relaxed atmosphere on the mountain. This was important for us as we are non frequent skiers /snowboarders (every 3-4 yrs only). The drive up the mountain via the Bus Transport is as scary as the bungy jump I did whilst on hols - how there haven't been any majors spills on this road is a credit to the drivers. Overall, if you can get over the thought of the Bus going over the edge then I'd recommend Remarkables to all levels of thrill seeker.
