Nice small ski area 15min driving from Queenstown with amazing views over the Southern Alps. On clear days you can enjoy views of Mt. Aspiring and Mt. Cook. Obviously, some Lord of the rings scenes were filmed there.

Less crowded than Coronet peak, with spectacular views, terrain is a little limited but that's NZ for you.

My partner & I flew over from Melbourne for a week adventure in Queenstown and Wanaka and we can't wait to go back this year! We got there right on 9am as the mountain opened and we were in the first row of cars, so you know what that means. Fresh New Show! Bluebird skies every single day! My partner... More

How can this 10-13km drive remain an apparent hidden gem when the views at different points up the mountain vary from stunning to spectacular. We drove until the metalled road became a track which was pretty rough. We could see the ski area a further 3km up the road. Credit to the skiers who drive up here in Winter. Not... More

Awesome drive up the mountain Roads are not for the faint hearted - no snow today but the views are to die for 13ks to the top and if you like a walk there's more to see

Definitely worth checking out if you're in Queenstown. Perfect for beginners with lots of good instructors. The cafe wasn't overpriced like the other mountains I visited while in Queenstown. Oh and fast wifi!

While NZ ski has done a lot to improve the base building and the additional runs they have screwed up the car parking big time,staff will park you so close its almost impossible to get out of your car. The shuttle bus is over priced. NZ Ski really needs to reconsider allowing camper vans up above carpark 5,this would give... More

Just climbed the mountain (in the summer). As we started from the ski field facility, the hike was reasonably short (compared to Ben Lomond on the previous day). The Lake Alta area and the views from the top were breathtaking - must do summer hike!!

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. This chair has nice long cruising terrain with a nice big area to skiers left of the chair for steeper off piste skiing. The natural... More
