In Episode 4, we venture beyond the resort boundaries on one of Queenstown's most famous landmarks, The Remarkables - the only mountain range in the Southern Hemisphere that runs true North to South.

In search of amazing terrain, untracked powder and to tick one off the bucket list the crew jump in a helicopter and ride the very rarely ridden southern and front sides of The Remarkables.

The crew are quick to realise there is a reason why the front side is so rarely ridden. With it's rugged steep faces disappearing into the lake below the crew are greeted by a stunning sunset that caps off an incredible day in New Zealand snowboarding history.
