Exploring the Southern Alps!

Crazy tricks on specially built features, fresh snow and some of the most incredible vistas our fine planet has to offer - this road trip in New Zealand's South Island sure was a banger!

The lower half of New Zealand's South Island is one of the least densely populated areas of the country - the untouched atmosphere and surroundings have to be seen be believed! In Episode 4, the crew track down the Southern Alps from Christchurch to Queenstown. We begin at Mount Hutt with a rail session that got loose with some crazy tricks from the likes of Mack James and Benny Comber. The next stop was Ohau - a must-do spot for anybody traversing the South Island during the winter months! The crew are then greeted with fresh snow and a crazy rock drop feature up at The Remarkables in Queenstown.

Featuring: Nick Hyne, Ben Comber, Nick Brown, Stefi Luxton, Tim Herbert and Mack James.
