Skyline Queenstown new bike trail to open in 2013/14 season

Skyline Queenstown new bike trail to open in 2013/14 season
August 21, 2013

Skyline Queenstown has announced details of a new mountain bike trail as it launches its season pass prices and information for 2013/14.

Starting at the midway clearing and gradually flowing through Queenstown bike park, the new $75,000 trail will complement the steady gradient of Skyline's other green trail Hammy's, providing riders of all abilities with an alternate option to the base of the gondola.

Skyline General Manager Lyndon Thomas said he was "delighted" to be able to offer local riders and visitors a new experience, explaining "for many bikers in Queenstown, New Zealand and even Australia, we're the location of choice, so we're really pleased we can increase the number and range of trails we offer and provide these riders with more thrills and the same convenience factor of a gondola ride back up the hill.

"Since access to these trails first opened, we've seen the continued growth of mountain biking as a sport, creating a significant economic benefit for many businesses throughout the region.

"This is a burgeoning market and Skyline quickly realised the importance of additional investment for both the company and for Queenstown tourism."

Work will commence shortly after the season opens on Thursday 26th September 2013.

Skyline Queenstown is home to the Southern Hemisphere's only gondola-assisted bike lift, providing direct access to 13 world-class mountain biking trails and varying terrain for all abilities in the Queenstown Bike Park.

This year, in an initiative to harness the growing interest among youngsters, Skyline Queenstown is offering Season Passes to local Wakatipu High School students at a special rate of $249.

The mountain biking season is scheduled to close on Sunday 4th May 2014.
