This was awesome for my children to be able to ride into town on this thing. My son loved it and it was free so we rode it quite a few times.

Nice fast way to cover the mountain. We rode it down and back up. Took 20mins round trip. We were hoping to see a moose but no luck. :) next time.

I would have paid money to do this and felt like it was a good deal, but it's even better that it's free!! Amazing views and a nice relaxing ride up the mountain, it's hard to beat.

The gondola is free and there is parking at the bottom of the mountain. The lifting compartments are roomy and we fit 4 with no issues. The ride was smooth about 10 minutes to the top ski area.

The views are beautiful and there is a restaurant at the top where you can watch the skiers. This was the favorite thing for the kids.

In the summer I believe it's free and the parking is right by the gondola. Call 970-453-5000. They will know for sure..

What rockyandmickey said, above, is correct. The Gondola is free year-round, but it takes you from in-town parking to the bases of Peak 7 and Peak 8. From there, you need a lift ticket to ski. You say that you've only been... More
