  • Great place, excellent for skiing or boarding. This ski field in particular is very well suited and is one of the best ski fields for beginners all the way through to the advanced. covered magic carpet, easy slower chair lift with longer very wide runs and gradual decent for beginners. large space and variety of slops and jumps for Intermediate. Advanced slopes and shoots for experienced expert. If you find this comment helpful please give like. enjoy your day.
  • There is absolutely no question why the mountains are named The Remarkables. It was truly stunning. The ski field was awesome. There were people everywhere to help inexperienced skiers like me and give advice to more experienced skiers such as my partner. Staff helped us with our snow chains (thank god!) The amenities were nice and clean. Food was a lot more reasonably priced then we were expecting (which is remarkable again)
  • We had a great 4 days at this versitile mountain. Had fun with lots of little jumps, rails, boxes and hills for beginners, they also catered well for advanced riders. There were some of smooth, gentle groomed runs, great for learning, but also no shortage of more difficult runs. Facilities were good, the large eating area means you can always find a spot to sit down and eat. It's a smaller mountain, but as they say, good things come in small packages.
  • Great ski field with a great layout for all levels. Our family spans all levels and we have enjoyed it thoroughly. Great staff. These people really make the difference. Happy, helpful and build an attitude across all of us to share the space and have fun. Equipment hiring is pretty simple, made easier by the staff. We just picked up our great each morning and dropped it back each night. No real penalty on time that I couldn't think would be just as bad as getting all the stuff in the car or bus. Lessons were great. Highly recommended for enjoying the skiing more. All levels catered to and easy on the day. Kids really well looked after including teens. The drive up wasn't too onerous. 4wd recommended and you have to carry and maybe use chains. Luckily someone will drive slowly so there is no rush and only the last section is dirt. It doesn't take long so again, don't rush!
  • Absolutely world class ski field. The views are amazing and this place can never disspaoint anyone. There is something for everyone here. Even for the beginners. The cafe is huge and caters to so many people and has an extensive menu. We totally loved this place. It's really great and highly recommended.
