The ride is free and the views are priceless! You can see all over Breckenridge and the mountains can be seen from all angles.

Great place to catch your breath. No lines whatsoever and fun people in a close (but not too close space)

Great avenue to lift in the winter, but also worth doing in the summer. access to good views of the town, drinks and eats, and hiking trails on meadow ski runs.

In the summer I believe it's free and the parking is right by the gondola. Call 970-453-5000. They will know for sure..

What rockyandmickey said, above, is correct. The Gondola is free year-round, but it takes you from in-town parking to the bases of Peak 7 and Peak 8. From there, you need a lift ticket to ski. You say that you've only been... More
