About this Event

Kiwis have #gottogetout!

Got To Get Out arranges many FREE outdoor events, to get the communities of NZ active / outdoors / healthy and exploring nature.

For this adventure, The Got To Get Out Queenstown Adventurers invite you to Hike up to the Remarkables Ridge in the Remarkables ski field to watch the sunset!

This Intermediate/Advanced grade hike is arranged by our volunteer community leaders with the sole purpose of getting the community outdoors, active, and connected.

NOTE: This trip is capped at 10 people only - so please make sure you get a ticket, and only come if you have a ticket. If you need to cancel, please do so in enough time that someone else can take your spot.

Details as follows:

Meet in the Events Centre Car park Closest to SH6 at 6:30pm. Would be great to get some carpool going should we need more than one vehicle.

Please let us know if you’d be willing to drive and/or bring a few $ donation to the ride, the ski field also sometimes charges $5 per vehicle for access.

Proceed up the Remarkables Ski Field road to the base (1600m), walk up to ridge line (1980m) via ski slopes. Rug up and have dinner or cups of tea whilst soaking in the beautiful sunset (08:39pm) over the Wakatipu basin.

Walk down in the moon Light(Nearly full moon), back to cars by 9:30, meeting point about 10pm.

Walking up and down the ski slope is quite easy although a little steep at times, there is a few meters of more technical terrain to navigate near the top which places this outing squarely in at a medium difficulty.

Because of the higher difficulty of this hike please message community leader Mark Pilbrow (dilbasour@gmail.com) and let him know your level of experience before joining this trip.
