First North American Mountain Cross Cart course comes to Sun Peaks
By Tourism Sun Peaks, posted 23, April 2015
Sun Peaks’ visitors will find an exciting new means of descending the mountain this summer. A brand new Mountain Cross Cart (MCC) course has been constructed on ‘Sunbeam’ ski run paralleling the Platter Lift, the first of its kind in North America. Nine MCC Parks are currently operated around the world including Sweden, Norway, Estonia and Finland. The new track is 512 metres long with a vertical descent of 52 metres and will provide an average speed of 35 km/h. Despite high speeds and a winding, gravity-fed course, the carts offer precise control and a high level of safety thanks to powerful disc brakes, four-point seat belts, roll bars and padded seats. To add an element of competition, runs will be timed allowing participants to race the clock or rival friends for the fastest descent. Sun Peaks’ MCC Action Park will open to the public in late June 2015.
