Queenstown’s The Remarkables ski area will extend its opening dates for spring skiing and snowboarding through to Sunday October 2, a week longer than originally planned.
The Remarkables was previously scheduled to close this Sunday (September 25) but snow conditions are fantastic for this time of year with a 1.2metre snow base at the summit and 80cm at the base, making it an obvious choice to extend the season through to Sunday October 2.
“Traditionally we close The Remarkables a week ahead of Coronet Peak, but in view of current snow cover and forecast weather conditions we’ve made the decision to keep The Remarkables open for another week as the snow cover is exceptional up there,” said NZSki CEO Paul Anderson.
“Coronet Peak is also scheduled to operate through to Sunday October 2, conditions permitting. That’s great news for locals and families visiting Queenstown who will have the choice of skiing both mountains for the first week of the New Zealand school holidays.
“As always we strive to deliver the best experience for our guests and it’s great to be able to give locals and visitors to Queenstown the choice between Coronet Peak and The Remarkables all the way through until Sunday 2 October.”
