      Skyline Rotorua is now home to New Zealand's first year-round Gondola assisted bike lift, accessing world-class downhill mountain biking.

      Skyline Rotorua MTB Gravity Park gives riders easy access to an 8.5-kilometre trail network featuring trails with varying terrain for all ability levels. Soak up the scenery cruising down Simple Jack, or see the trees as a blur as you rip into steep techie terrain on Ten Fifty One.

      The Skyline gondola takes the hard work out of the park’s 200-metre vertical rise. The dedicated gondola cabins are designed to take up to four bikes and riders per trip allowing up to 3000 downhill runs per day.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
