The gondola ride up is worth the $25. The views are outstanding! It was fun to watch the bikers racing down as we were slowly gliding up. The views from the top are beautiful. Our day was clear with blue skies that went on forever.

I've taken the gondola many times to the top of Mammoth Mountain, which is used heavily in the summer by mountain bikers. The views from the top are very scenic; the area is quite large and you can walk around and get views of many of the trailheads that you would take around Mammoth Lakes. The gondola ride is fun....

I went there to try mountain biking. It was pretty good, but the weather didn't cooperate. When it finally broke, I had a blast. But what made it even better were two of the staffers there. Brittany where I got tickets and Jason on the Gondola were so helpful and great. Made the visit perfect, and got me to stay... More

Excellent for the entire family from toddlers to grandparents, I nice walk out to the view point, with a staff guide to inform you of the geology and to identify the lakes and mountains of the area. You can mountain bike down the Mountain or hike down to Devils Post Pile, or have a decent lunch with great views and... More

I have been going to the Town of Mammoth Lakes for over 40 years. The area never gets old and there is always plenty to keep busy. My wife and I had lunch on top of the mountain for the first time. Great afternoon! For an additional $10 on the price of the gondola ticket, you get lunch at Cafe... More

Our waiter suggested we travel to the top of the mountain on the gondola. The scenery was beautiful. We knew little of the area before traveling here to see Yosemite National Park. The surrounding lakes and mountains are stunning.

Amazing terrain, elevation, snow, and town! Great big wide open terrain and few lines. Beautiful California sunshine and still over 8,000 feet in elevation always great snow!

Careful with the altitude change going up the gondola. Beautiful views and good trails to explore. If you have children, be careful because the dirt is slippery and could be dangerous for anyone. Don't get too close to the edge of the mountain! Fun to watch the people on their bikes headed downhill.

Gluten free option of cedar plank salmon was a piece of salmon with no seasonings of any kind. No options to order a sauce or anything like that. Mashed potatoes were cold. Steamed vegetables also cold. I could have done better with a microwave (or a campfire).

It is really something you should do once: racing downhill from a altitude of more than 3,300m on a bike. You can rent them down at the gondola. Service and quality of the bikes are really quite good, although it is by no means cheap.
