- ABOUT THE SPOT
Mountain Biking in Dirt Park NZ, Queenstown, Otago New Zealand
The town is surrounded by Lake Wakatipu and the awe-inspiring Southern Alps, with spectacular mountains such as the Remarkables, Cecil Peak and Ben Lomond. Queenstown and the surrounding area was the setting for the legendary films Lord of the Rings and X-Men Origins. Despite the mountainous landscape, the climate is considered to be oceanic, with warm summers and temperatures that can reach up to 30°C/86°F, and cold winters with frequent snowfalls.
One of the best freestyle/downhill mountain bike parks near Queenstown is Dirt Park NZ (55 km/34 mi to the Northeast). It’s the same site that operates during the winter as a ski resort (Snow Park NZ). It is considered as a freestyle steep and downhill terrain with the legendary 6 km/3 mi downhill OG Track, and consists one of the most popular destinations for the freestyle mountain bikers.
Perfect for riders of all levels!!!
