In Spring 2017, Makara Peak Supporters started building a completely new lower section of Ridgeline Extension .

The existing upper section will also be improved with new features added to make it more challenging. The entirely new lower section will be similar in style to Live Wires, with a rocky minimalist trail surface combined with a couple of steep drops, steps or jumps, and advanced and expert line options. There's even a giant rock slab that will feature multiple lines.

Once complete, the new line will mean there's a continuous, uninterrupted advanced/expert grade downhill from the summit to car park via Ridgeline and the new, longer Starfish (to be built once Ridgeline Extension is complete).
