The Pristine Beauty of New Zealand

Posted on 4/18/2017 2:27:00 PM in What We’re Watching

A note from independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:

Dirt is the new snow. That is the motto of a crew of mountain biking enthusiasts in Queenstown, New Zealand, profiled in this short CNN country portrait. The sprawling Skyline Queenstown Bike Park makes summer as fun as winter. How thrilling to take a gondola-assisted bike lift up to the top of a mountain and speed downhill! Après-bike, culinary adventures abound, too. We visit the Mount Edward Winery, where a vineyard yields a distinct Riesling; the Fork & Tap, an alehouse and restaurant that prides itself on foraging and sourcing food close to home; and the internationally acclaimed restaurants Botswana Butchery and Rata.
