Book - Gondola Bike Pass & Bike Rental

SKYLINE LIFT PASS & DOWNHILL BIKE RENTAL


Skyline Queenstown is home to New Zealand's first Gondola assisted bike lift, providing direct access to Queenstown Bike Park.

Ride more with over 25 world class mountain biking trails and varying terrain for all abilities. In amongst the pine trees of the Ben Lomond Reserve, Queenstown Bike Park boasts over 30km of tracks and a longest run of 6km. A 450 metre vertical rise via the Skyline Gondola gives riders easy access to arguably New Zealand's best mountain bike park.

Attach your mountain bike to your Gondola cabin at the Skyline Queenstown base and enjoy the leisurely uphill Gondola ride before detaching your bike and taking on the legendary challenges of the Queenstown Bike Park!

Armed with your trusty steed (full suspension bike built for downhill), you will be ready to hit the Queenstown downhill bike tracks in style!
