Transfers to and from The Hills will once again be provided by ski area operator NZSki.

The four-day tournament runs at both The Hills and Millbrook Resort on Thursday and Friday February 27 and 28 and The Hills only on Saturday and Sunday March 1 and 2.

The first buses will pick up at the Station Building in Queenstown at 9am and run every other hour until the last bus at 3pm. Additional later departures are available for those wanting to attend the Thursday night Street Party in Arrowtown and the Open Sounds concert on Saturday at The Hills.

They will also pick up at Frankton Bus Stop on the way out and back, and the frequency will ramp up to hourly departures on Saturday and Sunday.

To enable people to attend the family-friendly concert and make the most of the increased entertainment this year, buses will run until the entertainment finishes, with the last bus returning to Queenstown at 9.30pm. A trip each way from Queenstown to The Hills has remained at just $6.

For those who wish to drive, extensive car parking is also available at The Hills for either $10 a day or $20 for a season pass for the whole four days of the tournament.
