Snow Report Last Updated: Wed 25 May 09:02 AM

Lots of fresh snow has fallen over the past few days, which has given us a great base up here at The Remarkables! Opening day is coming around quickly - See you on the 18th of June!

The toll gate at the base of our road is operational right through to June 2022. $10 entry fee per vehicle, all 2021 adult season pass holders will have 2 free entries that can be used during this summer period. Please be aware that our road is not regularly maintained over the shoulder season months, so please carry chains and know how and when to fit them.

Road conditions

Chains fitted to ALL vehicles from the 10km mark. This is an alpine road, please drive to the conditions and always carry chains. Outside of the winter season, the road is not maintained. If there is snow or ice on the surface, please knw o how to fit your chains and be prepared to turn around. When open, the access is currently limited on upper sections of the road with single-lane access only at two locations. Orange cones mark the areas concerned. Please drive with caution and give way to downhill traffic at these locations.

Backcountry Advisory:

If you decide to go skiing or snowboarding in the backcountry, you need to carry the right safety equipment. Avalanches happen for a reason, so it’s important to choose your terrain wisely. You are welcome to go and see Ski Patrol to get an up to date report on current conditions. Please be aware that our Ski Patrol do not patrol these areas and only venture here in the case of a known emergency. Our Ski Patrol does not manage intentions but please visit the Mountain Safety website for details on requirements to ensure a safe backcountry adventure.

For up to date avalanche information please refer to the NZ Avalanche Centre's latest update.

Ski Touring at The Remarkables:

Alta Turquoise to Alta Lake is the designated safe ski touring route and is the only permitted ski touring route while ski patrol is conducting avalanche control work. Ski touring within the ski area boundary is dangerous and can result in serious injury so please respect all signage and closures. View our Ski Touring information.
