2023 The North Face Frontier, presented by Winter Games NZ 4*

04-08 Sep

The North Face Frontier 4* is a Freeride World Qualifier Tour event and welcomes competitors to The Remarkables Ski Field in Queenstown, NZ as part of the Winter Games NZ. 

This event will accept the 50 highest-ranked athletes that enter. 8 spots will be held open in the 4* for the top 3 ski men, 2 ski women, 2 snowboard men & 1 snowboard woman from the 2* event. These eight competitors will receive a refund of their entry fee from the 4* (or free entry if not already registered.) 

New Zealand borders are fully open and there is no need for any quarantine period on entry. Travellers into NZ no longer require pre-departure PCR tests 

The 4* Freeride World Qualifier event will be held on the best competition day during the weather window of 4 - 8 September 2022. As a qualifying event for the Freeride World Tour, it is an important stepping stone for freeride athletes. 

The North Face Frontier provides ski and snowboard competitors more opportunities to stack up FWQ points by running both a 2* and 4* event. With the excellent facilities and spectacular terrain of The Remarkables as the competition venues and as one of the first events off the FWQ season, The North Face Frontier hopes to attract top level competitors from all over the globe.
