Visitors to The Remarkables ski area near Queenstown in New Zealand this season have benefitted not only from great snow conditions, but also from a number of resort improvements on and off the slopes. Riders and skiers this winter have found the ground level of the base building fully renovated with bigger and better children’s facilities and a more efficient, easier to access Guest Services department. Ross Lawrence, Ski Area Manager for The Remarkables said guests have enjoyed improved flow throughout the base building. “We’ve worked with the space to reorganise some of the departments to create more room for the kids and better flow for all guests from entry into Guest Services then onto the snow. “We’re a family focused mountain so we’ve invested in our children’s facilities so more families can enjoy this alpine environment. Our Skiwiland Early Learning Centre can now look after children from as young as three months. The children’s facilities will complement our dedicated beginners’ area and Snowsports School and all children aged 10 and under receive a free day lift pass.” he added. Two new snow groomers have been added to the existing fleet and have added to the quality of groomed terrain for riders and skiers. One of the new machines has specialized equipment to help build and maintain the park system “We have fantastic terrain parks at The Remarkables creating a real progression from novice through to advanced levels. This groomer has helped us keep those parks ship shape!”
