Which ski field in Queenstown is best for beginners?
Cardrona is great for beginners with its wide open slopes and brand new chondola, a ‘combined’ lift of gondola cabins and chairs, making it easy for first time skiers and snowboarders to ride to the top of the mountain on their first day.
Is Remarkables good for beginners?
Beginners are safest where the terrain is not too steep, where runs can be well groomed and where other skiers have enough space to give them a wide berth. The Remarkables has some of the widest, smoothest beginner runs. Cardrona and Coronet Peak also have spacious dedicated beginners’ areas.
How many days do you need to ski in Queenstown?
Spend three days on the slopes, with two sets of lessons each day, as you learn the basics and begin tackling more challenging terrain. With passes valid at both The Remarkables and Coronet Peak, Queenstown beginner ski packages offer an excellent discount.
