Good to go once just to see the "fourteeners". Food available at restaurant / gift shop at top. Playgrounds for children. Try a round of horseshoes at this altitude!

Mid-June gives loads of beautiful wild flowers, whether you walk up the mountain or take the gondola. Same for the view from the top (see photos). Highly recommended. BTW, if you walk up, you get a free gondy ride down (until about 4:30).

Enjoyed the hike with Hank my Lab. I like going up the Ute trail rather than directly up the tram area. Nice to ride the tram back to town.

Skiing Ajax for the past decade. Great access with the gondola right in town, easy walk with minimal wait lines. Relaxing trip up to the top to catch a breath when running a straight top to bottom run. Plenty of very challenging runs, and that...More
