I live in Whistler and race downhill all Summer in and around Canada. I'll be doing a trip down to New Zealand and more specifically Queenstown to get away from the snow and get some training in. I know there is the new bike park there(skyline?) and I was wondering what the trails are like if they are good for training downhill etc. Also was wondering where Gee and Stevie filmed for Follow Me and if its possible to ride those trails. Any help is much appreciated.

Cheers, Nick.

The locals will look after you if you ask nicely Cool

Skyline has some pretty decent runs, not as many as the big parks over your way but it pretty decent and has some hard charging locals to give you someone to chase.
