We thought we had seen it all when we returned to the gondola after a nice hike in the mountains above Elm last weekend. We ain't seen nothin' yet! As we entered the station, a dozen or so rugged tricycles caught our attention and we had an immediate vision: We must try the mountain carts! A few minutes and five francs later (that is on top of the round-trip gondola fare), we were ready to work the hill:
Gravity kicked in right away and our carts picked up speed quickly! Leading down a narrowing and widening gravel path, we were glad that the track was closed off for hikers (and cows, for that matter). Incredibly, the entire downhill race lasted for about 20 minutes, so by the time we got to the bottom we were hoarse from all the laughing and screaming!
We cannot wait to do mountain carting again! If you want to experience it as well, check the official mountaincart website for a list of locations.
