Line goes fairly quickly. Amazing views. Shuts down often when it gets windy. You also have to take the gondola back down to base as there are no slopes to take you back down.

This is worth the money, even if you don't ski. The views are awesome. There is an observation deck half way up that I recommend to take advantage of, it's included in the price of the lift ticket. Don't pass this up. The view is heavenly.

Start your day of Hevanly Skiing by taking the Gondola to mid-mountain runs. Spectacular views of Lake Tahoe will inspire your first run. Located in the main parking lot so when you return you can just pull the car up and pick up your team. Very knowledgeable and funny host inside the cabin. Mark knows it all!

Took the ride to the ski resort and how fun was that! Offered mersmerizing views of the snow capped mountains and the tahoe lake from the top. The steep ascent towards the end is a different experience altogether, specially if they stop you just at the top!

The gondola was only open 1 out of 6 days due to high winds . We were staying in town to be close to the gondola but never used it. I have, however used it before on another ski trip. The one day it was open had long lines. Luckily my husband doesn't ski so he was able to drop... More

My husband and boys went skiing and the girls and I went shopping. We decided to check out the gondola and what a pleasant surprise. The views were beautiful and thrilling. We met the boys for lunch at the ski lodge. Great day!
