Of course the views! Haven't been here in 20 years, brought our family up, and other than the crazy scary ride up the mountain, everything was great. Breathtaking views and great staff!

This was a great experience. Great views as well. I would say this is a see one time attraction. Being honest it is pretty expensive to take the Gondola.

Worth going to the top. You can walk to peak to peak. Well paved wooden bridge up there. Spectacular view. There are detailed signs to identify the different mountain peaks.

We loved seeing the beautiful views on the way up and down in the gondola and up at the top. We were fortunate to have a clear, sunny day so you could see for miles in all directions. We were able to take some beautiful photographs of the breathtaking scenery.
