For when you're ready to send it a Mile High... this is a session all about air time. Speed, body position, take-off and landing - this one's for our most confident bikers who want to step it up even more.

We also offer a trail guide option for intermediate and above riders who haven't been to Cardrona before. This 1-hour session is more about a mountain orientation; getting the inside scoop on trail conditions and getting to know entries, exits and spots to watch out for around NZ's highest bike park.
