Not really much to see here. At the top, you can see downtown and whatever you do, don't take the sky lift in the heat of the summer. It's squelching and it's a slow, slow ride up and down the mountain.More

Great new skylift; loved the ride up and down. Amazing views even on an overcast day. Top is not open yet but it looks like it is going to be over the top; especially the new suspension bridge. Worth the cost; enjoy the ride!More
