We drove up in late December just after it had snowed. We left Tucson and it was 70 degrees, by the time we arrived at the ski resort it was below freezing. The views were stunning and it's hard to believe the changes in the types of plants and animals. We watched pretty little birds with the most stunning irridecant... More

We love Mount Lemmon and took this trip on a miserable hot humid July day. It's 30 degrees cooler at the top so it felt heavenly. We tried to take the lift trip up the mountain, but it was closed for service the first attempt and lightning storms shut it down the second trip. The staff if great and they... More

It takes almost 2 hours to drive up to the top of Mt. Lemmon and come back... if you stop for pictures along the way. I kind of regret not being able to take more time to get out and explore some of the rest areas along the way... but was restricted by time. Couln't believe the change in climate... More

It's a lot of fun to escape the dessert heat and go to where the air is cool. The restaurant is kind of fun and they usually have a good selection of food. We have been up there for Octoberfest and had a great time.

Mt Lemmon is one of the most peaceful places. When in ski valley be sure to find wood fire pizza and giant cookies and some fudge.

We went up with another couple for the Oktoberfest event. Good food, but pretty expensive ($22 for two brats and 3 sides). Beer was reasonable ($5 for import bottles) but they had a limited selection of German beers. But when you factor in no charge for admission with free entertainment (polka band and games for kids) it's not unreasonable. You... More

The trip to the top of Mount Lemmon is not to be misses. The trip takes close to an hour if you dont stop; however, there are multiple overlooks and it is worth your time to stop at as many as you can. You will see multiple changes in the topography - from Sonora Desert to woodlands. There is a... More

We took the ski lift ($9.00 per person) up to the top and decided to walk down (I was a chicken)...The walk down on the paved road was SPECTACULAR! The smells and sights were stunning. The best part was at the top (August 22nd....By the way) There were THOUSANDS of ladybugs. It looked like raspberry bushes...Stunning...You could grab a handful... More
