A definite must-do activity when visiting Sun Peaks—and maybe the most exciting and exhilarating way to descend a mountain! Sun Peaks Resort is home to North America's first (and only!) Mountain Cross Cart (MCC) course.
Now into the fifth year of operation, the MCC course has become a main attraction at the village base. With a 512 metre long course that includes a 52 metre vertical descent, the carts are capable of reaching speeds up to 35km/hr—which makes things quite interesting with some of the hairpin turns on the ride down! The platter lift runs 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.
The MCC Course is located slopeside of the Village Day Lodge. Tickets can be purchased at the MCC Course, Guest Services, the Activities Desk located in the Village Day Lodge and Elevation Bike, Ski & Board in the Sun Peaks Grand Hotel.
