About The Remarkables

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.
