Are you a racing driver? An adventurer, downhill biker, adrenaline junkie? Or do you just enjoy trying out new activities? Then mountain carting could prove to be your new favourite thing to do in Zermatt! It’s a thrilling ride down the mountain from Blauherd (2'578 metres above sea level) to Sunnegga (2'288 m). A drop of almost 300 metres of altitude and countless moments of action and fun.
So, what are mountain carts? They are three-wheel go-carts; they have a comfortable seat and high-quality aluminium frame, and wide tyres to ensure a smooth ride over rough ground. Hydraulic disc brakes with a dual circuit brake system and tough wheels make sure you can always stop safely. The cart’s low centre of gravity ensures additional stability and safety.
You can hire your mountain carts in the Blauherd kiosk. Staff will explain the rules, show you how the carts work and provide you with a helmet and goggles. Then it’s off on a wild downhill adventure!
The more the merrier
The more friends, colleagues or family members you bring along the more fun mountain carting is. Tickets can be obtained from the web shop, at the valley station or on Blauherd. One ticket covers up to five descents. There are also family rates and discounts for children.
Tip: For a birthday treat, motivational exercise or club outing – mountain carting is the perfect group activity for action addicts!
