The North Face Frontier, a Freeride World Qualifier Tour, welcomes competitors to The Remarkables Ski Field in Queenstown, NZ from 2-7 September 2018.

Formerly known as The North Face Freeski Open of NZ, in 2018 The North Face Frontier will add some exciting new elements to this well-loved event.

For over a decade, the world’s top skiers used the NZ Freeski Open as a stepping stone to the Freeride World Tour. In 2015 snowboarders were also invited to compete and the overwhelmingly positive response made it an easy decision to keep the snowboard competition as a permanent fixture.

In 2018 The North Face Frontier will again provide ski and snowboard competitors more opportunities to stack up FWQ points by running both a 2* and a 4* event. With the spectacular terrain at The Remarkables and as one of the first events of the FWQ season, The North Face Frontier hopes to attract top level competitors from all over the globe
