We’ll sort out going up, the downhill is all yours

Take on the legendary challenges of the Queenstown Bike Park – New Zealand’s first-ever Gondola assisted bike park.

With over 30 world-class downhill MTB trails totalling over 30 kms of riding and 450 metres of vertical descent, the Queenstown Bike Park is easily one of the best places to ride a mountain bike.

The crew will attach your mountain bike to your Gondola cabin at the base. Once you're at the top, we’ll un-hook your bike and the rest is up to you.

Please note: Gondola access to the Queenstown Bike Park may be impacted by the Queenstown Lakes District Council’s planned tree removal adjacent to the Gondola line.

2020/21 Season Update

We can’t wait to get the bikes back on gondolas for the 20/21 season, the 10th full season of Skyline MTB!

As you all know, we’ve had a few setbacks recently in the form of COVID-19, however we are committed to making this season our best one yet.

Whilst we are focused on providing you with the best experience possible, there will be a few changes to our operational structure due to the impact of COVID-19.
