Ski Bus

Getting to The Remarkables is easy; we're a scenic 24km from Central Queenstown. You can either drive yourself or catch a ride on The Remarkable's Ski Bus. The Ski Bus departs regularly from outside the Snow Centre on Duke St in Central Queenstown for an easy ride up and down the mountain in winter. We have a fleet of modern 4WD buses to carry you and your equipment in comfort.

We also offer a Ski Bus service to Coronet Peak ski area in Queenstown.
