TRANSPORT UPDATE: As of 8am today, you are only able to purchase bus tickets from the Snow Centre in town for transport today. You can still book online for upcoming days, just not for today. Like many businesses we are currently affected by staff absences due to COVID isolation requirements. We are supporting our team and trying to roster more staff in wherever possible. There may be some areas on the mountain where we are unable to staff normally and our service levels may be affected. We ask that you are patient as we are working hard to make your day a memorable one. We truly appreciate your understanding and hope your experience is not inconvenienced while visiting The Remarkables.

Non Skiing Activity

Take a ride on the Shadow Basin Chairlift from 12.30pm - 2:30pm and enjoy epic views over the Wakatipu Basin, truly one of a kind. Our snowplay area is open for sledding, if you need to hire any equipment, please talk to our friendly Guest Service team. Please visit Guest Services for tickets and remember to bring your debit/credit cards as we are a cashless mountain.

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.
