All the official on-mountain sports and festival events at Audi quattro Winter Games NZ 2018 will once again be free to watch so you don’t need a ticket.

That’s right, you don’t need to pay a cent to watch some of the world’s best winter athletes compete, experience the opening and closing ceremonies or catch some great live music up at the skifields.

Of course, if you want to ski and snowboard at the mountain venues you’ll need a lift pass, and if you want to give curling a go yourself at Naseby then standard fees apply.
