Early birds will be the first to make tracks in Queenstown’s snow-covered mountains this winter when staying at Holiday Inn Queenstown Remarkables Park.
Still fresh from its December opening, Holiday Inn Queenstown Remarkables Park has launched its early bird Sky to Ski package which enables eager snow-enthusiasts to step off the plane and hit the ski slopes in record time.
Queenstown’s newest Holiday Inn boasts an excellent location for convenient access to the ski fields and maximising time on snow. A quick 5-minute drive from Queenstown Airport and another 5-minutes onto The Remarkables Ski Field Access Road, Holiday Inn Queenstown Remarkables Park saves guests at least 15 minutes’ drive (and up to an hour during peak times) compared to commuting with the droves of traffic from Queenstown centre.
Pre-booked hotel car parking is available, alternatively bus transport stops right outside the hotel on its route up to The Remarkables, effectively making it one of the shortest bus trips up and down mountain.
Whether its pre-ski or après ski, snow-lovers are treated to the full suite of hotel services at Holiday Inn Queenstown Remarkables Park – the only accommodation in the precinct to offer a restaurant, bar and to-go café. The hotel has a secure drying room and storage for ski gear.
Sleep at the foothills of The Remarkables and wake to see the weather conditions from a mountain-view room at Holiday Inn Queenstown Remarkables Park. Fuel up for breakfast at Giants Restaurant to keep you pumping on the slopes and grab-and-go supplies from Rolling Giants to-go Café to avoid pricey ski field food.
