Video - Skiing in Queenstown for beginners

It's easy and fun to try out snowboarding or skiing at one of Queenstown's local skifields.

In this short video we head up to The Remarkables ski field to find out just how much fun you can expect if it's your first day on skis or a snowboard. Check out ski instructor Becs putting the 'starter pack' group through their paces.

The morning was filled with beautiful bluebird skies, huge smiles and snow-plough stops! Richard from Adelaide, Australia lets us know how he got on and what else he's been up to. We also take a sneak peak at the new Ice bar at the top of the Alta chairlift.
