Rode the gondola to the top to meet our group of skiiers for lunch. Great food choices and scenery. Took advantage of professional photographer for family Christmas photo. Nice fireplace seating area and balconies with views.

Beautiful views and smooth ride. Watching the skiers was an added bonus. Great people watching at the top and bottom in winter.

The regular Four Mountain lift ticket covers all lifts and gondolas. A "foot pass" for non skiers is available for a reduced price.
