  • We visited The Remarkables during summer & hiked from the main ski base up to "The Highway". It was a tough walk & not for the faint-hearted but the views at the top are spectacular!  more »

  • Came here in January (Summer), luckily still got to see some snow on the ground. Very cold and the air is thinner due to the higher altitude.  more »

  • New facilities. Very well maintained, very clean toilets, good coffee. Good hire equipment, with staff happy to help fit it. Beginners magic carpet lift very close to the cafe building and there is a wide beginners area. Only four chair lifts and there isn't a huge range of runs for intermediate skiers. Great road up to field with fabulous views. Ski field is in a bowl and weather can be quite different from Coronet Peak.
  • Remarkable place to ski. You can take shuttle bus or drive here by yourself, you only need to notice the snow or black ice on the road (If weather is bad). I drive by myself and feel very ok. I am a beginner and sign up a beginner class. Teacher is kind. I have a lot fun today.
  • Slopes werent fully open when I came but nevertheless it was amazing. Highly recommend the Shadow Basin chairlift for any blue slopers. Very few people compared to Curvy basin, just as long if not longer with more wide steep slopes. Very nice.
  • A very fun place to be! Especially during winter. Play with snow and they have restaurant too up there. Easy to access from city.
  • Great snow field. New chair opens up more terrain and the new food outlets are good for on mountain food.
