A great option for intermediate to advanced riders looking to explore the trails of Queenstown - 3 hours of shuttles! You choose from two regions either:

  • CORONET PEAK: Rude Rock, Zoot & Skippers Tracks

Rude Rock - One word: Flow. Perfeclty sculupted to follow the contours of the mountain, this trail starts just next to Greengates lift at Coronet Peak Ski Area flowing down towards Skippers Canyon access road. 

Zoot Track- Such a fun track! This one has quite a mellow gradient, so its great for everyone, trail riders and those new to the downhill scene. But, for the more serious downhill riders, there are plenty of doubles and features off to the side, and this track is fast, real fast! A very easy shuttle, you can punch out a full lap in under 10 minutes and it's only a 15 minute drive from central Queenstown.

  • QUEENSTOWN DH: Wynyard & Remarks Tracks

Wynyard Express DH- Right in the middle of Queenstown, on the opposite side of One Mile Creek to Queenstown Bike Park. This track is an old favourite with Queenstown locals. A couple of distinct sections, the first a series of big flowy berms, then a steep section dropping down into the Wynyard Mini Dream jump park (the Dream Track is a short push up the hill). The Wynyard track finishes with the ’Million Dollar Berms’ and runs down to the One Mile car park. Another quick shuttle, if you ride top to bottom you’ll beat the van, but only just!

Remarks DH- Two tracks run down next to each other, joining briefly around the half way mark. Both tracks have plenty of flow, heaps of playful features and enough challenges to keep the average DHer busy for a few hours. A word of warning, these tracks have been built to ‘evolve’ with usage, not much maintenance gets done out here, but that adds to the fun!
