This is a great way to see the City from a different vantage point. The ride is about 20 min up. Defintely cooler temps up on top - would recommend bringing a coat!

Amazing views. Smooth ride. Some gondolas allowed for you to connect your own music to the speakers. The views at the top were breathtaking! Food was good too!

The regular Four Mountain lift ticket covers all lifts and gondolas. A "foot pass" for non skiers is available for a reduced price.
