Apologies for the repeat email. Moments after we sent our THASU The Remarkables announced that they are delaying their opening.

The Remarkables ski area announced today (June 19) it will delay its opening until snow cover improves in the near future.

Ski area manager Ross Lawrence said he was “determined” to ensure conditions were right before unveiling the much-anticipated new Curvey Basin Chair, terrain improvements and sealed access road to guests.  “We’re making good progress towards achieving sufficient snow cover, and that’s being assessed daily so the ski area can open as soon as possible,” said Mr Lawrence. “Everything is all ready and waiting, and our hard-working team is excited to get things going.  We just have to wait for Mother Nature to deliver the goods.

“We had some superb early-season snow dumps in May, but the recent weather system over the South Island hasn’t yet topped up that early snow enough for us to open.  “We’ve invested significantly in snowmaking, especially on our new trails, and we’ve got 89 snow guns all fired up at every opportunity.  We’re expecting a good dump of natural snow over the next week and are anticipating opening soon after that.  "We’re looking forward to having guests come up and enjoy the new terrain opened up by the Curvey Basin Chair.  

“The major redevelopments will certainly enhance the overall experience for guests and give them far more options to challenge themselves and explore new and different terrain.

Awesome snowmaking conditions again today means we are on schedule to OPEN tomorrow!  Because mother nature has been a tad challenging in the last week we will operate McDougall's Quad and our Learner Conveyor tomorrow (weather permitting).  Because of this, Lift Passes will be HALF PRICE until further notice.
