Scenic Chairlift Rides

The summer chairlift takes visitors from the base area through a peaceful mountain forest to the top of the Angel's Tread ski run. Take a round-trip ride, or hop off at the top and enjoy the spectacular views of the San Juan Mountains. Hiking trails traverse the mountain through meadows of wildflowers.

9 am - 4 pm (weather-permitting)
$9 per ride

Closed-toe footwear is recommended when riding the chairlift and the Alpine Slide. Children must be at least 3 years old and 36 inches tall to ride the chairlift.

Summer activities require a signed release prior to participation.  Release will be posted soon.
