Took the chair lift to the top of the ski hill. Initially disappointed that it didn't start until 11:00 and that the car parking lot was locked at 4:00. When we got to the top, the view although good had been definitely impacted by the fire. We were surprised that most people rode the chair lift, got off, took a... More

One of the best kept secrets in Tucson is this ski lift atop of Mt. Lemon. During the winter it provides skiers with a way to enjoy some happy times. The only disappointment is that sometimes we do not get enough snow. At all other times, the ski provides a way for all of us to reach the top and... More

However, we chose to ride the ski lift on a round trip to the top and back. It is a little pricey ($10 per adult) but the views as you come back down the hill are spectacular. I don't know when they actually have enough snow to ski? We have visited in January twice and there wasn't much snow either... More

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
