We rode to the top on opening day..$49 for adults and worth every penny. Scenery is great and it is very well staffed. Heavenly Epic is doing an awesome job providing an assortment of activities for the outdoor enthusiast.

I used it the day it opened June 15th. It's across street from my timeshare. Highly recommend for individuals or families. It also provides wheelchair access and very cool activities for kids/families at the top. I was alone and really enjoyed it.

We just stayed two nights at South Lake Tahoe and chose a hotel next to the Gondola because we wanted to go up with it. BUT IT WAS CLOSED!!! In the Internet it said it is open... very sad experience...
