Whatever your game, there’s a heap of summer action on offer from hiking, all different levels of mountain biking, a range of night adventures and the newest buzz to hit the slopes – Mountain Carting.
We gave mountain carting a blast as it just looks so damn cool – 2 hours on the mountain turned out to be the perfect amount of time to enjoy the tracks and still have time to get up to a few other things throughout the day.
We picked it up quickly and before we knew it, we were taking in the magic views of the Cardrona Valley from the chairlift, heading up to the top of the trails.
Hitting our first run of the morning, we eased into things by heading down the Green (Easy) trail, just as you do when you’re learning to ski, but on 3 wheels even the Greens allow you to crank up quite a speed and pull off a few skids around the corners.
Bring your own GoPro to get some shots of your experience – some of the helmets are setup to with mounts which is great. We filmed the ride facing both front and back, giving different perspectives of the adventure. You’re also able to get some neat shots from the chairlift as you ride directly over the tracks.
The season runs until April, so if you don’t make it this summer, be sure to keep it on your list for the 2017/18 season. It’s getting better – there are plans to extend the course, increasing length and number of trails – which we’re really looking forward to checking out.
