We rode round trip (that’s all that was available). You could see some of the burned out homes from the Dec 2016 fire and a great view of the area.

Friendly people, beautiful scenery, just a bit pricey. Over $40 for myself and two daughters to ride a ski lift.

The views are breathtaking! It’s a short ride to the top. The lift never stops so you let it bump you in the leg to sit down, the same as most ski lifts. It’s $16 for adults. I can’t remember child prices. It’s very cool....More

I was just there and saw tons of kids, but at a certain age, I'm sure they have to be accompanied with an adult. (probably 12 and under) But, it's a perfectly safe ride for all ages.
