The difficulty system is slightly overboard. The main blue run difficulty should only be counted as a green run
The snow is magnificent, thou it does get very crowded
note: storage for gear is highly priced at $20~ with food options over priced and abismal
It was home for the ‘17 southern winter, accessibility is by far the best in the area, excluding coronet peak; but having a lot better snow and back country than Coro. Out of all the resorts it was the most forward moving with food and beverage trends catering for my ridiculous paleo preference with quinoa dishes, coconut base/sugar free treats and almond milk for hot drinks.
Staff friendliness is also up there, it only lacks a better sense of community outside the park; something achieved by cardrona but I believe there is potential for it at remarks too; it may need a little encouragement from management.
Can’t wait for next either winter to come shred it again!
One of the most naturally beautiful ski resorts I have been to. It has a great terrain park setup and a good variation of terrain. The road is it bit rough though.
Although it's smaller, the Remarkables is much more relaxed and less busy than Coronet Peak (even though it's the other big Queenstown resort). I haven't seen it yet but they also have a new lift which opens up a lot of terrain since I was last there and I believe there are plans to put in a gondola which would mean you don't have to drive up the mountain each day. I've had some great days at Remarks. Tip - at the end of the day do the car park run which takes you right down to the bus stop (or your car).
