Remarks as they call it have been down at NZ two seasons now and I have to say I like remarks, they have a nice park and if you want to go a bit offpiste there are great opportunities for a hike or two. - For all rocks, it's damn a lot of rocks and rocks so when there is some snow, the offpiste is not recommended.

As mentioned before, Grusvägen is a close death experience. Went up with a public bus that was probably part of World War II before it ended up at NZ.

A nice area but quite small and dull lifts. Dress warmly for the chair lifts cool.

Was there last week of the season so the weather was not the best and all the slopes did not open. There was a small park with some rails and some jumps, which were actually sprayed despite the low season.

Took a day trip, where ski passes, ski hire and transport included about 1000: - Not worth it, but awesome to have traveled on NZ!

It takes about 45 minutes by car and 1500 meters from Queenstown on a deadly gravel road to reach the lifts. According to rumors, a gondola is planned from the valley and all the way up to the top, but it will last for a number of years. Lifting is no problem, however.

The facility is very simple in international dimensions but the snowfall is mostly good. The lifts suck large but it is better to hang here in high season than in the neighboring Coronet Peak which takes 80% of all tourists.

The park does not get high points but there are usually some bigger jumps and a number of rails.
Remarkables are best known for hiking. Do you want to go a little further so you will see huge views and fly over muddy rocks down into the snow depths.

A day ticket costs around 300 SEK, but you buy a season ticket around March sometime and it costs under 2000 kr (2002 prices).
Are you in NZ then be sure to visit this place, but do not have high demands, take it for where it is. However, you have money and limited time, then invest in heliskiing. Awesome!
