As fun as snow... only dirtier! There are no uphills at NZ's highest bike park!

Lap the lifts and get your heart pumping on the way down! The Cardrona Bike Park is serviced by McDougall's Chondola (gondola cabins & 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 10 km trail that covers 1270 m 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 with us after work 4pm-8pm for our TGIF late session every Friday night. 

Cardrona Bike Park has everything you need to enjoy the stunning alpine trails. Downhill & full suspension bike rental, safety equipment rental, lesson packages & 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 2020/21 Summer Season. Check out full T&C’s here.
