Skyline Queenstown helps fast-track new Queenstown Bike Park jump trail
Skyline Queenstown is proud to be supporting the Queenstown Bike Park, giving it a significant boost to help fast-track the resorts first gravity jump trail.
Excavation work commenced last week, and thanks to this donation, the 800m long trail is now set to be completed by mid-late October.
The project was spearheaded by QMTBC, whose volunteers have spent countless hours scoping out the site to find the best topography for the trail, as well as fundraise for the project. They are welcoming any volunteers to help dig the trail every Saturday from 9am.
Located above Ben Lomond Reserve’s half-way clearing and adjacent to the existing Vertigo trail, the trail will be 2-3 metres wide and jump sizes will vary from 3-4.5m right through to more than 12m. Jumps will be floaty table-top jumps that can send advanced riders a long way but still progressive and safe enough for the intermediate rider.
The 2015-16 season is anticipated to open on September 4 and close on May 8, 2016.
