It’s hard to think about winter when temperatures are hovering in the high 20s down by Lake Wakatipu. But the NZ Ski Team and Base Contractors are hard at work on the Remarkables Ski Field getting the area ready for a new high-speed, six-seater chairlift which will be operational for the 2014 ski season.
NZ Ski states: “The new 1.2km Curvey Basin lift will begin at the bottom of the expanded learners’ slopes at 1600m and rise to a top terminal at 1900m above sea level, just below the ridgeline at the south head of the Rastus Burn, known as Curvey Basin.”
The ski area is still accessible for hiking and climbing over summer, though visitors are asked to take care not to cross construction sites and parking is in the bottom carpark.
