If you are skier, you already know about this great ride. Those of you that do not ski or do not mountain bike can still enjoy the Gondola ride from the transportation center near main street to Peak 7 or 8 base. The best ride is in summer. Early in the day or late in the day are best. The Gondola provides a view of the wet lands which is good habitat for a lot of wildlife: Moose, fox, coyote, squirrels, and many birds. The ride is free. The Gondola does not operate much in off season: Mid-April to Mid June and Mid-Sept to Thanks Giving. The views going down the mountain are great! You can take the free bus form just about anywhere in Summit County to the Transportation Center in Breckenridge to access the adjacent Gondola.
