Yesterday we brought our unique mountain carts from the mountain to central Wanaka for a free mountain carting experience in Lismore Park.
The crew hand-mowed a track through the park that got faster as the day went, & more than 80 locals & visitors came to give New Zealand’s only mountain carts a go!
The event saw people of all ages (2yrs–72yrs!) enjoying the carts on a perfect Wanaka summer’s day, many of the visitors coming from a day of pre-Christmas activities. The carts were a big hit with the younger audience in particular – it was so great to see all the kids and their parents having a great time on them!
“That was heaps of fun,” said Scout, 5yrs, from Hawea. “We went to Santa’s Grotto, the Dinosaur Park & then we got to do this!”

The event was a pre-cursor to our summer operations of lift-accessed mountain biking, mountain carting, hiking/walking, Alpine by Night & tubing. The summer season opens on December 27 & runs until April 2.
“We’re stoked that so many people got to give mountain carting a go today,” said Cardrona’s Sport Manager Spy Dunbar. “We loved seeing all the smiling faces, & we’re amped to see everyone again when Cardrona opens.”
We can't wait to see you all on December 27 – get up here for another great summer season of alpine adventures!
