Day 1: Queenstown | The Remarkables

Welcome to Queenstown! Your tour starts bright and early at 6am where we waste no time heading off to The Remarkables with a whole day on the slopes ahead of us. En route, we’ll stop to pick up any equipment you may have hired.

Today offers wide open trails, native Keas (parrots!), spectacular views, sun drenched landscapes and unforgettable runs. There's terrain here like you have never seen before.

Known locally as ‘The Remarks’ the ski field is located at the eastern end of Queenstown’s Lake Wakatipu. Imagine a vast natural amphitheatre hidden in the snow-capped rugged ranges. Being so high up is a major benefit; it gives the ski field a long, reliable season – and the north-facing aspect makes it a natural sun-trap so bring your sun cream!

The highest ski field in Queenstown at 1935 metres, The Remarks has something for everyone as the terrain offers challenges for skiers of all abilities, including one of the most memorable runs in New Zealand: the long, fast sweep named Homeward Bound.

The Remarkables ski area boasts a new international standard Super Pipe for advanced level riders and skiers. The 150m long, 22m wide pipe is triple the size of the existing terrain park at the top of Sugar Bowl Basin. The expanded Xbox Terrain and Rail Park and other features, combined with the big mountain possibilities, make The Remarkables the logical choice for the free riders out there.
