Morning: Mountain Cross Carts:

Non-motorized carts (so like coasting / biking). $25 per person:

“The new track is 512 metres long with a vertical descent of 52 metres, reaching speed up to 35km/h. The platter lift will run daily during the summer months to bring both carts and racers to the top of the course.

Despite high speeds and a winding, gravity-fed course, the carts themselves offer precise control and a high level of safety thanks to powerful disc brakes, four-point seat belts, roll bars, and padded seats. Although this may loosely resemble favourite childhood go-carts, the mountain environment and tight corners add an exciting twist. To add an element of competition, runs are timed allowing participants to race the clock or rival friends for the fastest descent.”

Also: Sunday morning Farmers market in the main village walkway.
