Really enjoyed the sky lift. Easy and comfortable ride and a great view of the mountains. I was really amazed at the amount of wildflowers blooming this early in the season. Great ride!

Well you can’t get off at the top because the once gift shop was burned. It’s just a loop ride now. Still had great views but would wait until they finish the new building at the top.More
