You can take a gondala or a chair up the mountain. The views are spectacular. We did not see a bear though. The staff is friendly and happy.

Nice ride to the top; however, once you reach your destination the views are spectacular!!! The ride down is very scenic as well.......went on the open chair lift!!

As expected for the ride, pleasant in the outdoor chair, saw ground critters but no Grizzlies. At top expect to walk quite a bit, Whitehorn Interpretation Center was neat, touched furs and horns, but Bistro is definitely walking to taste the food. Fantastic views especially...More

The breakfast was what you'd expect: scrambled eggs, potatoes, toast, sausage, bacon, yogurt, coffee, etc. It was hot and filling! The service to refill was quick! The ride up the mountain is breathtaking! It is incredible seeing the lodge at the bottom of the mountain....More

Excellent views from atop. Was disappointed that the restaurant and bar were booked for a private event and we weren't notified at the time of booking. Would have been more enjoyable to relax and take it all in over drinks and food.

Beautiful views and lots of activities, members of our group enjoyed horseback riding, canoeing, and hiking. I was in the group that hiked and our guide loved his job, and was very interesting and knowledgeable. Other activates were also available, like rock climbing.

Bought the dine and ride package. Was sorely disappointed by the "dine" (i.e. free breakfast). The selection of food was so terribly miserable. Also, there was one "fruit" platter but they just tasted like cocktail fruits from the tin can. The ride was pretty nice...More

Great time to go (if you don't ski and want to avoid large crowds) is at the end of May. We had a wonderful time. Great aerial views, spent a lot of time up on the mountain and didn't feel rushed. Weather was nice, even...More

We purchased the gondola/breakfast package and it was well worth it! The breakfast is only a couple of dollars more than just the ride by itself and features full hot and cold breakfast bars with excellent food. The animal exhibits at the top are interesting...More

The lines took forever because people were allowed to ride up in pairs on the chairlift unlike other ski areas where all seats are maximized! Allowing 2 versus 4 on each chair doubled the wait time at top and bottom, an experience I don't want...More
