The 2016 Cardrona Mega Avalanche & Queenstown Motor Group Mega Fun Day

It was a MEGA Good Friday up at Cardrona this Easter!

Over 100 people of all ages took part in a day of fun, chocolate, challenges & extreme downhill racing – there was something for everyone!

Queenstown Motor Group Mega Fun Day

It was a super fun day up at Cardrona for all our smallest mountain bikers & walkers! The MaltEaster Chocolate Bunny hunt started at the top of McDougall's Quad, with chocolate bunnies stashed all the way down Afternoon Delight trail & around the Base area for the littlest hunters!

Old schoolers & pump track demons had their taste of fun in the Retro Rigid Race & Mons Royale Pump Track Challenge! The Retro Rigid Race zoomed down under McDougall's Quad in a free event with awesome prizes. Competitors in the Mons Royale Pump Track Challenge had 3 laps of the pump track in the skills area to claim the fastest time of the day.


Cardrona Mega Avalanche

The Cardrona Mega Avalanche went DOWN on Friday – all the way to Cardrona Village! 81 competitors set off from the top of McDougall's Quad, racing all the way through Cardrona Bike Park & down the specialised track all the way to the valley floor. Top honours for the day went to Connor Macfarlane & Mops Newell.

Thanks to all our sponsors who helped make this amazing day happen! We appreciate the input from the legends at: Queenstown Motor Group, Outside Sports, Mons Royale, Altitude Brewing, Snickers, GU, Marmot, Fox & Smith.
