I love that this gondola is free. It offers great views, a quick trip up to the slopes, and plenty of room for big groups to stay together. Our group of 7 fit with all our gear.

Excellent service provided by happy and friendly people. The Epic pass and its "clocking system" makes some of this superfluous but its nice to talk. Well ordered and helpful when people fall or have problems. Keep it up

The Gondola ride is free but you have to pay to park. You could take the free Breckenridge bus to the Gondola, though if you don't want to pay to park. The Gondola is a great way to access the ski slopes or just take...More

My first gondola ride. The pods are clean and have seats. The last stop is the bar on base of one of peaks. On the way back there was someone directing foot traffic. It is easy off and on. This is a great way to...More

Great activity while in Breckenridge. You can ride the gondola to the roller coaster/bobsled. That was fun!

You can take the gondola to the top to enjoy the views or to jump out and hit the slopes. Either way, all gondola stations have friendly staff ready to help, if needed.

The gondola ride was great. Grandkids had a ball. Little one was scared at first then decided she loved it.

Easy to use, simple & free way to get downtown. Wish the hours were extended longer at night. But, otherwise great.

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..

Hi, my family and I are visiting Breckenridge for Christmas for the first time. We are from south Florida and only been skiing one or twice. Even though we would love to ski a couple days during our trip, I’m a little bit frustrated with the price and all the different options for the lifts, it is just confusing. So noticing that the Gondola is a free service and goes to the peak of two bases 7 and 8, I was wondering if with this ride we would be able to get to a place where we can get our skis out and go downhill with no needs for lift tickets. I’m also going to be looking for another forum to get a little help with the confusing world of lift tickets. Thank you
