The Remarkables Ski Field

Wide open trails, native kea, powder snow, spectacular views, sun-drenched terrain and unforgettable runs. There’s terrain here like you have never seen and if you’re willing to work your legs a little, you’ll discover super long off-piste runs. 

The Remarks (as it’s known to the locals) is set in a vast natural amphitheatre high in the rugged ranges at the eastern end of Queenstown’s Lake Wakatipu. Being so far up is a major plus, giving the ski field a long, reliable season – and the north facing aspect makes it a natural sun-trap. The highest ski field in Queenstown at 1943m, the Remarks has something for everyone, including one of the most memorable runs in New Zealand – the long, fast sweep called ‘Homeward Bound’.

Included: Breakfast, Lift Pass

Stunning view of the Remarkables in Queenstown.

What Judith says about this tour: What better way to spend a week in the South Island's ski fields than this fully guided, transferred and planned snow safari. If you're high on energy and looking for adventure, I highly recommend this epic six mountain adventure.
