Lap the lifts and get your heart pumping on the way down! The Cardrona Bike Park is serviced by McDougall’s Chondola (gondola cabins and 6-seater chairs) and Whitestar Express (4-seater express chairlift), so there’s no need to pedal uphill. 

With trails for all levels, NZ’s highest bike park offers an ultimate alpine mountain biking experience for everyone. The trail network includes a lengthy 10km trail that covers 1270m of vertical to the iconic Cardrona Hotel. You’ll be calling ‘one more run’ all day.

Weekend warriors can kick off the weekend by lapping in the park after work 4:00pm-8:00pm for the TGIF late session every Friday night. 

Cardrona Bike Park has everything you need to enjoy the stunning alpine trails. Downhill and full suspension bike rental, safety equipment rental, lesson packages and bike workshop. Cardrona has you covered!

New to mountain biking? Check out a bike lesson package to get you feeling confident on your bike and Cardrona’s trails. Cardrona even has a free skills area at base, so you can warm up before hitting the trails.

And don’t forget a Cardrona summer season pass is your ticket to ride all season long! 

Please note all summer season passes are non-refundable, non-transferable and must be used during the summer season. Check out full T&C’s here.

Cardrona Mountain Bike Park is open daily from December – March (closed Christmas day)
