We came in November with a 3 year old. There was snow but she did not have much interest in skiing. This gondola is free up and down. It was fun to see her face as we “flew” up the gondola. At the top there...More

Since I am disabled, this was the closest thing I could get to being near the slopes! The ride itself is beautiful! We did it twice! And it's free!

Great views. This is a must for everyone. We were amazed at the views of Breckenridge especially after 4 feet of snow fall.

Great trip up the mountain with the kiddos! At the top there is a great place with a ton of kid friendly stuff in the off season!

There is everything to like about the Breck Gondola. It’s free, you get some terrific views, and you have some nice access to things to do up top. There is a little adventure type area for kids as well (paid). Have a great adventure!!!!

The Gondola is a fun way to get up to the resort and experience everything there. We were also able to see a Moose on our way up in the Gondola. The Gondola ride is free.

The best part of this? it was free. they seat 8 ppl and the ride is smooth enough. the "windows" appear plastic and are heavily scratched, so the view is not as good as it could be. Getting on and off takes a little leap...More

I’m not sure but I know they were open by 9am and I think they close by 6p or 7p. This is just from what we observed.

Actually, you have to pay for parking but not for the gondola!
