Cardrona Alpine Resort is the only place in New Zealand where you can go mountain carting... this is one for your summer bucket list!
Experience gravity-fuelled excitement on New Zealand’s only mountain carts! With three carting tracks to choose from, you can explore the mountain your way. Take in the alpine scenery on a leisurely roll or race down the mountain and master the art of drifting around bends before riding the lift back to the top for another lap. No prior carting experience is needed, just a sense of adventure and a thirst for FUN!
