We always look forward to taking the gondola rides to the top of the mountain to enjoy the amazing views. The only downside is that the schedules are so limited in the off season, which is when we tend to visit most. The gondolas are...More

Easy ride up the mountain, great views. We rode the gondola up, hiked a meadow path and then took the gondola back down again. You can hike down the mountain. Bring your own food and drink.

We were glad we took the gondola ride to the top, a little hesitant because of the cost but it was worth it. The view was stunning and we enjoyed the trail at the top with the animal figures and the wildlife information.

We hiked the Gitalong Trail (an easy/green difficulty) from Lionshead to Gondola One then on to Eagle Bahn. The 5-mile hike with a 2000ft elevation gain took just over 2-1/2 hours and was worth every minute. Hiking and biking trail maps are widely available and...More

We rode this up so we could hike up top. We could have hiked up but that would add about 3 hours of steep hiking. Not sure we would have anything left for up top. It's a $40 ride and the views are great but...More

This time of year the gondolas are operating as ski lifts. They only do the scenic rides in the off season. Check their website for dates.
