Architecture of new Remarkables ski base

We recently visited the The Remarkables, a mountain range and skifield just out side of Queenstown on the South Island of New Zealand. The mountains were named by the Queenstown settlers, upon seeing it during sunset one evening and named them the Remarkables to describe the sight.

In the heart of the iconic Remarkables mountain range is the stunning Remarkables ski area with a new ski base set to open in winter 2015 that would get an architect excited – check out the drawings below. The terminal will sit at 1600m with new lifts transporting up to 2,400 people an hour up the slopes,with potential to grow to 2800 people per hour. That is a lot of skiing!
