On Saturday evening we brought 10 mountain carts from the peaks of Cardrona to Wanaka, for a few hours of FREE downtown carting!
In a family-friendly event, thrill-seekers young & old tried out our new adventure at Lismore Park. From 6-8pm, members of the public were boosted off a wooden ramp, steering their way through a marked course to the bottom of the hill. Cardrona staff members then loaded the carts onto a trailer & sent them back up to the start line.
We also received donations & raised awareness for Adaptive Snow Sports New Zealand. The evening saw over 200 rides with members of the public keen to experience downtown carting on unique mountain carts.
Cardrona is the first alpine resort in the Southern Hemisphere to offer mountain carts, which were designed & produced in Germany.The three-wheeled carts have a low centre of gravity, hydraulic disc brakes & are fun for everyone – from the cruising with the family to racing your mates!
We’ve got a busy events schedule in March, kicking off with an Industry Demo Day & Strava Enduro on March 6th. Cardrona will also host the 2016 Altherm Windows Systems National Mountain Bike Championships from March 17-20 & Cardrona’s Mega Avalanche starts on Friday March 25. The Mega Avalanche will be run with a ‘Hot X Fun Day’ which includes a family downhill race & treasure hunt up Cardrona – we can’t wait!!
