Developments at The Remarkables on track for 2014 ski season

March 18 2014

Summer developments at The Remarkables on track for 2014 ski season as Early Bird season pass sale comes to a close

With developments at The Remarkables on schedule for the start of the 2014 ski season, skiers and snowboarders won’t want to miss the Early Bird season pass sale for Queenstown’s The Remarkables and Coronet Peak.

Contractor Fulton Hogan arrived on site yesterday (March 17) preparing to seal the first 4km of The Remarkables access road. Work is expected to take six to eight weeks to complete and marks another important milestone, part of an extensive makeover which includes the installation of the six seater 1.2km Curvey Basin chairlift on the mountain.

Winter 2014 season passes at discounted rates for Coronet Peak and The Remarkables are available online at www.nzski.com until midnight on Thursday March 20, 2014.

For the third year in a row, Season Pass rates remain unchanged, aside from a slight increase in The Remarkables-only season pass price which reflects the extensive developments happening on the mountain.

“Early Bird Season Passes have been on sale since late last year, but we always get a last-minute rush so we’re urging people to not to leave it till the final hours on Thursday night,” said NZSki GM Sales and Marketing Craig Douglas.

“These are the lowest available rate and great value, but after midnight on March 20 they go up to the full season price.

“If people buy now they can spread payments over three months until May, then when the temperature drops and the snow comes they’re ready to go with the freedom and flexibility of unlimited lift access at The Remarkables or Coronet Peak.”

Season pass holders will benefit from the extensive work being carried out at The Remarkables.

“Developments at The Remarkables have been well documented over the summer and we’re right on schedule to have it all ready to go for the beginning of the season,” said Mr Douglas.

Work being carried out over the summer for the 2014 season includes:
• New six-seater Curvey Basin lift
• New trails
• Increased snowmaking
• Expanded learners’ area
• First 4km of road sealed
• Increased and improved car parking

Key 2014 Early Bird prices are:
• Queenstown Adult Season Pass $889 (full price $1299)
• Remarkables Adult Season Pass $599 (full price $899)
• Mt Hutt Adult Season Pass $699 (full price $1049)
