Each cart can hold two passengers and the driver is in control with a special hand brake that gives absolute speed control to the riders’ preferences. At 160 feet at the start of the coaster, the track takes the riders down the mountain surrounded by beautiful trees all the way to the base of Peruvian Express chairlift.


From August 30-September 1, the Grand Opening of the Mountain Coaster will offer a special lodging package that includes unlimited Mountain Coaster rides. At only $69 (plus tax and resort fees) per person, based on double occupancy, participants can enjoy the thrill of the new attraction as many times they desire.
