The 2024 Winter Games NZ will kick off with the much anticipated The North Face Frontier 2* and 4* Freeride World Qualifier events at New Zealand’s home of freeride, The Remarkables ski area in Queenstown. The action will then head across the Wakatipu Basin to Coronet Peak, where two high octane FIS Australia New Zealand Cup Giant Slalom and two FIS Australia New Zealand Cup Slalom races will be held.

The FIS freeski and snowboard park and pipe program at Cardrona Alpine Resort is comprised of four competitions, including two FIS Australia New Zealand Cups (snowboard halfpipe and freeski slopestyle) and two FIS World Cups (snowboard slopestyle and freeski halfpipe).

The FIS World Cups mark the beginning of the journey to the Milano Cortina 2026 Olympic Winter Games as the first events in the global FIS calendar that count towards Olympic qualification.
