“Remarkable views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2011

I was hesitant about coming down. The views were so beautiful and the day was just as beautiful, no winds, sunny. My husband and I chose an open lift rather than the enclosed gondola and were able to get some amazing pictures. My one tip about coming down would be to keep your gaze out rather than looking down. Definitely worth the little bit of queaziness i experienced. At the top you are able to walk to the ranger/small museum and check out the animals, also a guided walk is available. Since there were bears in the area we chose not to go on that.

“Our favorite gondola”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2011

Wow!!! This was a real find. The lodge is gorgeous and the ride up in the chair lift is serene and peaceful. Definitely pays to do the gondola and lunch buffet, Worth every minute of time and every dollar.

“Great View & No Bear to been seen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2011

We arrived around 9 am in the morning and we had there buffett breakfast and then ride the gondola up to half way to top of the mountain, on the way up , we never seen a bear and then went to the education centre and over looked the mountains, then walked back to the lift, on the way down, we never seen a bear either, it might been too early that morning for us to see the bear. We seen alot of squirrells at the base of the chair lifts and we were on the open chair lifts, which was a little cold at that time of the morning. maybe next time we will go later in the day and may see a bear this time.
