How cool to be able to take a free Gondola up the mountain in the summer time. Great views both on and after we got to the top of the Gondola ride. There are all kinds of things for kids to do at the top. Different exits along the way. My wife and I went back to the exit that... More

The gondola was clean and in relatively good shape. It was in July and the experience was positive. Bring a camera.

The gondola ride is such a great trip considering it is free. It takes you up to several ski resorts that you can stop and see along the way. You get some pretty great views along the way too. Lines aren't too bad, but we went early in the morning.

Great FREE option in Breckenridge! The lines weren't too long, but beware once you get to the top, there are lots of options and they are decidedly not free. Kids were playing on snow/ice patch in late July, though, and that didn't cost a thing. We only had time for one ride and chose the Alpine Slide - it was... More

This is a great family activity if you are in Breckenridge or if you just need to get from the top to downtown!

We did some of the rides, but the gondolas were the favorite part. The enclosed gondola up to the activities was nice, dog friendly, and surprisingly free. The other gondola/ski lift up to the top was even more amazing with incredible views, especially on the way down. It was even better than the rides.

We flew up the Gondola in September. The Aspens fluttering in the wind below. You can see the ski runs where snow piles in winter. We had lunch in the fast food restaurant on top of the mountain.We chose to take the Gondola for the return trip.

The gondola runs during the summer up to Peak 8 where there are a variety of family/kids activities. It is free for people - if you take a bike you need to pay. The Gondola is a 3 stop ride - don't get off until you get to the top! There are services available at the top (restaurants/restrooms). Beautiful views... More

My husband and I visit Breckenridge frequently but this was our first time on the gondola since we do not ski. We decided to take the gondola to the top and check out the scenery that a lot of these reviews mention and see what was at the top. The gondola moves continuously and we were able to get on...

Best way up! Love that our dog can ride along. Each year we plan a morning to ride the gondola up to see the snow that's left from winter.
