The Remarkables

It’s certainly in the name - these mountains are something pretty special. The Remarkables are one of the most photographed ranges in the world, and is a huge favourite of experienced and beginner skiers alike. For the beginners, it features wide runs from the main chairlift, meaning an easy introduction to the ski world. For the more experienced, The Stash terrain park allows for the wild tricks and hits off natural ramps and jumps. With it being one of the mountains serviced from Queenstown, it certainly pulls in a high number of visitors each season. By working here, your season pass will also allow you to ski at Coronet Peak.
