In August 2016, The North Face Freeski Open will return to New Zealand as The North Face Frontier, a Freeride World Tour sanctioned event, open to both skiers and snowboarders.
The host venue for this year’s event will be Queenstown’s The Remarkables ski area, home to some of the best big mountain terrain in the Southern Hemisphere.
Day one will see some of the top rookies and pros from around the world compete in a two-star Freeride World Qualifier, held in the Shadow Basin. Day two will be the main four-star Qualifier event held in the Alta Chutes, as competitors push themselves to the limit to impress the judges.
Be sure to tune in for all the action from the 22nd to 27th of August!
