Great in winter or summer. Can take mountain bikes up the mountain in summer, or skis in the winter. Some ride up and hike down, though you need to be very fit. I rode up and down after a nice picnic enjoying the view.

You pay a lot but it's worth it, the staff are fantastic and it's so memorable. Shame we never got to do it in the summer, that would have been a fantastic experience.

I love going up the gondola, even during the summer. The views are great going up and down, day or night.

A beautiful and breathtaking ride to Thunder Lodge. Thursday included a special rate at 5 pm to view the afternoon sunset. The food was good also. But oh what a view

I'm not a skier but wanted to check the view from the top. There is a decent restaurant with a nice bar at the top.

I rode the gondola with my daughter, son-in-law, and their 3 and 6 year old boys, so the boys could try skiing for a short time. The ride was wonderful, with great views of the countryside. Getting on and off was easy, with attendants to...More

We've skied Steamboat numerous times. It's easy to figure out when the busy times are going to be (morning, holidays). At those points the lines can get pretty long. I appreciate that the staff is always right there to assist- we have kids ages 10,...More

Their website will have the most accurate information.
Where do you park and where do you pickup the gondola for a ride to the top. Not skiing.

The parking referred to above is the Knoll upper lot which gets full VERY early. Most of the parking is on the lower Knoll lot which has a free bus ride to the GTC, (Gondola Transit Centre)

My husband and I are planning a visit to Steamboat in June. Is the gondola handicapped accessible? I am handicapped and will be using my electric scooter while on vacation. Is the summit worth checking out?
