Ski Field - The Remarkables

    Remarkables Ski Field Queenstown

    Everything Travel Group Review

    The Remarkables is ideal for familes with its huge beginner area and state of the art facilities but also offers some of the best off piste skiing in NZ. Nothing beats Homeward run after a fresh dump of powder! If you're not a beginner or don't want to go off piste then Remarkables can get a bit boring as the main ski runs aren't that interesting.

    Lift passes are unable to be pre purchased so we don't have any ski packages available for Coronet Peak. However, if you do need to hire clothing, skis, boots or snowboards then we recommend orgainsing them before you head up the mountain. This will save you the hassel of organising it first thing in the morning before you ski and also saves money as they are heaps cheaper than hiring gear on the mountain. Check out the Skis, Boards & Clothing Rental page on our site.

    We recommend you book a Cardrona ski field package as the snow is often superior and there are less people with more open spaces to enjoy beginner and intermediate skiing and boarding. Check out the Cardrona Ski Field Ski Packages available on our site.

    If you are an advanced skier or boarder then consider going to Treble Cone for the most challenging terrain in the New Zealand. It's a bit further away but worth it if the snow is good!

    There is a sign at the bottom of the mountain stating if you need chains or 4WD

    Do the shuttle buses back into town have to be full to go back? We fly out at 5pm and don’t want to get stuck up there because the buses won’t be leaving from 1.30 due to no passengers.

    Comments

    Thanks for your question about the Remarkables ski area transport! I can confirm that the buses depart every 30 minutes as long as there is at least 1 person on board. So the 1:30 bus will depart at 2pm at the latest. Will you be flying domestically or internationally? Queenstown airport can be extremely busy at times so I do recommend giving yourself enough time.

    Is there ample parking at the Remarkables

    Comments

    There is a few parking areas up Remarkables, however I would suggest getting up there early to get a park because space fills up fast

    was hoping to wander round top of Wye Creek area, how do I access the ski field road and pay toll, cheers

    Comments

    Thanks for your question regards to the Remarkable Ski Field. If you are just going up to the mountain it is free to go to the skifield and there is no toll to pay.

    Hi, Is there a free shuttle going up to the Remarkables ski area from the parking area near Kingston Road or down the mountain? Does it still go up at 2pm? I'm arriving from airport at 1pm and just like to go up the Remarkables ski area for short sight-seeing. If not free, how much will it cost and which shuttle bus to I contact for booking.

    Comments

    Heya, Unfortunately there is no Free shuttle. You can pay for transfers from town or drive up.

    Can you drive a campervan up the Remakables access road? Is there parking avaliable at the top for 8/9 metre long vehicles? Thank you

    Comments

    Hello. Yes campervans do drive up the remarkables ski field. It is not really recommended as the best option as the road is very windy and depending on the conditions snow chains can be required to make it. There is plenty of parking to fit all kinds of vehicles.

    Hi. I am wanting to pre book the passes and lessons for the kids. My 3 kids have never snowboarded before. Are they likely to need lift passes for the first day or 2 learning to board or are they likely to remain on the learner slope. Please advise. We are due to arrive 21st June

    Comments

    Hi Steve, it is unlikely that they will move off the learners slope for the first day or 2 so they will only need access to the learners slope. Unfortunately we cannot book lift passes and lessons for The Remarkables ski field and it actually isn't necessary to pre book your lessons and lift passes rather you can get it all organised at the top of the mountain when you arrive.

    Is there a cost to park your car and is there plenty of car parks available?

    Comments

    Hi Carol, there is no cost to park your car up at the Remarkables ski field nor do you have to pay a toll for the access road. There is plenty of parking at the top however I recommend arriving as early as possible as the later you are the further down the mountain your park will be .

    Can you drive a normal car eg. Toyota corolla up to the snow if you have chains? Or is it best to get a shuttle?

    Comments

    Hi Belinda. You can drive a normal 2 wheel drive car up the Remarkables ski field road in Queenstown as long as you have chains with you. Sometimes the roads are closed due to too much snow though. If you have not driven in winter apline conditions before then I would recommend catching the free shuttle from town as the roads can be treacherous.

    Hi Dave. Yes the ski fields are open by the end of June in Queenstown and although this is quite early in the season there can sometimes be a fair bit of snow at this time. Fingers crossed!
