Summer 2015/16 is going to be absolutely humming up Cardrona with a whole bunch of new alpine activities! From Mountain Carting, to walking and hiking, to even more trails in the Bike Park, there’s something for the whole family this summer!
The Cardrona Bike Park will be receive loads of new improvements for the 2015/16 summer! The park offers lift accessed downhill and cross country mountain bike trails so there is something for every kind of peddler! Trail construction and maintenance is currently underway to build more trails for every skill level. Technical, advanced trails along with our “Freeride Zones”, where riders choose there own line down a wide bank, will keep even the most hardcore bikers frothing all season long!
For the beginner mountain biker, this season we have McDougall’s quad open with access to beginner and intermediate trails. We will also be debuting the Cardrona Bike School this summer, so you can come up and learn from a pro! Test your legs out on the Learner Conveyor, or take the little ones to the Kids’ Park in the base area.
Mountain biking not your thing? Why not take one of our extreme Mountain Carts for a spin? New for this summer, the three-wheeled carts will access beginner, intermediate and advanced trails on the Learner Conveyor and McDougall’s Quad. Race your friends or cruise with the family on the specially designed off-road carts!
Walking and Hiking
If you prefer to stay on your own two feet, Cardrona also offers lift accessed walking and hiking! With two chairlifts to take in the breathtaking 360° alpine views, you can either take a light stroll to the Skyline viewing platform or access our many hiking trails around the mountain. Breathe in that fresh mountain air and pack your camera as there’ll be plenty of photo opportunities!
Enjoy the wonder of Cardrona at night with the Alpine at Night package! Have a delicious dinner at Mezz Café as you wait for night to fall. Then you’ll head up McDougall’s Quad on a guided tour like no other! After soaking in the incredible alpine night views on the chairlift, you’ll take a short walk to the viewing point where you’ll sip on mulled wine or hot chocolate as your guide tells you about local myths, legends and Cardrona history. Finishing with either a walk or a chairlift ride back to base, it will be an experience you’ll never forget!
With so much on offer at Cardrona, it will be a summer to remember! Book into our on-mountain apartments and bring the whole family for a truly epic summer alpine experience! We can’t wait to see you up here soon – bring on summer!!
