My daughter (8 yrs) really enjoyed skiing here. Good beginner hills and the conveyor belt lift on the training slopes is a very easy to use. Lots of fun. I recommend as a good family/learning ski area.

The Remarks are higher and more user friendly than Coronet Peak and are ideal for the intermediate snowboarder/skier. Lifts are fast and runs are fun and bowlier than it's sister Coronet Peak.

If you are a skier or a boarder, do not miss this place in winter. Loved the day there, good snow, good variety of runs. Would love to return

Remarkables is my favourite mountain out of the two that are directly close to Queenstown. Incredible views and great fast runs. There’s some easy off piste hiking that can be done additionally. Never fails to deliver when you come up here!

The Remarkables offer better options for beginners as more green slopes and much wider than Coronet Peak.
