dDub Set To Rock The Decks At Coronet Peak (30-Aug-09)

Coronet Peak, New Zealand, August 30, 2009 - The slopes are set to rock at Coronet Peak

The slopes are set to rock at Coronet Peak this week when one of New Zealand’s favourite live music acts provides a sound track for Night Skiing at the ski area.

Kicking off at 7pm on Friday September 4, dDub will share their uplifting roots music with the mountain crowd on Coronet Peak’s decks.

Hamish McCrostie, Ski Area Manager, said the evening will be electric.

“This is the Big Night Ski Out and everyone, including non skiers are invited for an evening of free live entertainment from dDub. It costs nothing to watch the band and people are welcome to come and enjoy the music as well as take a few runs on their skis or snowboard under the stars,” he said.

dDub are renowned for drawing the crowds and are regular visitors to Queenstown.  The band cites influences from Bob Marley through to Bob Dylan and Lee Scratch Perry in their rock-roots-reggae-funk-ska medley of tracks.

Every Friday and Saturday nights skiers and riders can enjoy Night Skiing under floodlit trails until mid-September, weather and conditions permitting.

dDub will play for 1 hour 50 minutes and both the bar and restaurant will be open until 9pm serving an array of beverages and hot meals.

Night Skiing is included with all nzskipasses and Queenstown season passes, otherwise tickets can be purchased from the Queenstown Snow Centre or at Guest Services on the hill for $48 adult, $32 youth/senior or $40 student.
