Increased Parking at Remarkables Ski Field

By Nina Jensen

Work is under way on a new car park at the Remarkables ski area that is considered critical to its future.

Earthworks began on Monday to create a 300-space car park and bus turnaround about 1km down the skifield’s access road from its new base building.

Owner NZSki was granted non-notified consent for the project last week.

It has permission to excavate about 20,000cu m of earth over a 4800sq m area at two sites above the access road, and to deposit the material below the road to create the car park’s platform.

NZSki CEO Paul Anderson says with visitor numbers forecast to grow 22 per cent to 165,000 from last year, the car park was “critical” for the ski area’s future.

It would increase parking capacity by about one-third, which was expected to be sufficient for the ”foreseeable future”.

The company had ”worked closely” with the Department of Conservation on the project, which would cost between $300,000 and $400,000 and take up to 10 weeks to complete, he says.

Despite increasing parking capacity by 150 spaces to 675 before last season, the ski area reached capacity on 12 days.
