The Remarkables Ski Resort, owned by NZSki, is once again the next of their 3 New Zealand ski resorts in line for further development. Queenstown locals and ski holiday makers will get to enjoy a brand new multi-million-dollar state-of-the-art base building for the 2015 ski season, as well as a fully sealed access road to the car park.

In 2014 the Remarkables Ski Area has already undergone major improvements with the introduction of the new Curvey Basin 6 seat chairlift, opening up a huge amount of new terrain to the delight of many snow enthusiast.

NZSki CEO Paul Anderson said the company was committed to continued investment at each of its ski areas and on-going improvements to product.

“This season we introduced our new six-seat, high-speed detachable Curvey Basin chairlift at The Remarkables which was a huge hit with visitors,” he said.

“Curvey was part of a substantial $45m investment at the ski area for the 2014 season which also included road re-alignment, sealing of the lower access road, trail developments, expansion of the snow making system, and extended car parking.

“The new base building will be the icing on the cake for 2015 – a brand new, world-class facility for skiers and boarders with improved restaurant, ticketing, rentals and retail, and easier access to the Curvey Basin lift.”

Work has already begun on the road sealing and new base building in preparation for the opening day in 2015. The basement level of the building is in full swing, if only the weather would play nice for the folk at Arrow International who are overseeing the project.

So far Queenstown has seen snow in the spring months of October and November, usually a volatile time of year for weather, but the team at Remarkables will be crossing their fingers for a long hot summer so that work is completed in time for the first skiers and boarders to hit the slopes next season!
