Brand new for everybody
A trip to Skalka, Mt Černý vrch or the summit of Mt Ještěd sounds interesting, but how about combining it with a bit of adrenalin? We definitely say YES! And are adding something brand new to our family trip to Skalka – mountain cart downhill. The track begins at the upper Skalka chairlift station and ends at the lower station. We have been informed that mountain carts can be used only by individuals taller than 150 cm and in pairs only if an adult rides with a child and they weight max. 100 kg together. Helmets and goggles were included so the adventure could begin.
This is how the mountain carts could be called as well. We got the Kickbike FAT MAX model, which was big, robust and made us feel safe also in steeper sections thanks to quality disc brakes. After the downhill, we decided to try scooters. We thought it would be more dangerous than mountain carts, but the reverse was true. We enjoyed it as much as our kids and can recommend it as a family activity for everybody.
Ještěd is a paradise for bikers. There is a downhill bike park with a nice history. What’s more, the accessibility of the resort is a big advantage because it takes only an hour by car to get there from Prague. The park offers 3 trails of various difficulty levels and all of them are located near the Skalka chairlift, which we used to travel up the hill comfortably. Our kids didn’t join us this time, but adrenalin fans will love it for sure.
