The Remarkables is probably my favourite mountain in New Zealand due to it's diversity of terrain. There are multiple ways to start your day and for a quick lap head up main six pack chair.

The drive to the Remarkables ski area is filled with breathtaking views of Queenstown and the surrounding peaks. Hike up the ski lift to look over the top. Splendid!

Met up with some old and new friends who showed us around quickly. It was easy in any case. Beautiful weather and a great day skiing. Take the bus - the drive might be a bit hairy!

Bus to The Remarkables every 20-40 mins daily from Queens Town. You can rent your gear at mountain. good for unplanned traveller as you dont need to book anything. just go to the bus stop to purchase your package same day.

Heaps of terrain lots to explore fast lifts, since the renovations more space for the masses. Always my first choice when in Queenstown.
