The versatile terrain and north facing slopes makes The Remarkables ideal for families and beginners providing fun for all ages. A true alpine environment.
The Remarkables (aka The Remarks) is known for its diversity, good history of snowfall and three sunny natural basins. Renovations in 2014 brought in a brand new six-seat high-speed detachable chairlift, increased snow making capacity, expansion of the learners area, new trail development and the re-alignment and expansion of the car parking area. With its high altitude and north facing sunny slopes, The Remarkables has some of the best alpine views in the world.
New Lift – The Curvey Lift has the ability to take up to 2,400 people an hour up the mountain to access the new terrain and new trail.
