The North Face Frontier

The North Face FRONTIER - A Freeride World Tour Qualifier Event

The North Face Frontier - a Freeride World Tour Qualifier event - welcomes skiers and snowboarders to a freeride festival at Queenstown's The Remarkables Ski Field from September 3 - September 8, 2017.

For over a decade, the world’s top skiers have used this event (formerly The North Face Freeski Open of New Zealand) as a stepping stone to the Freeride World Tour. In 2015 snowboarders were invited to join the competition and an overwhelmingly positive response lead to the snowboard competition becoming a permanent fixture of the event.

In 2017, The North Face Frontier runs for the first time as part of the NZ Winter Games. The event will provide ski and snowboard competitors more opportunity to stack up FWQ points by running a 2* as well as a 4* event. With the excellent facilities and spectacular terrain of The Remarkables as the competition venue and as one of the first events of the FWQ season, The North Face Frontier attracts top level competitors from all over the globe.
