The alpine slide is awesome fun!! But beware of rain. Take a chairlift to the top (complete with your photo taken) and enjoy the views. There is a nice little garden trail, views of Mt Rushmore, and a little snack bar. The snack bar wasn't overpriced and serves adult beverages if you're interested. After we reached the top, it started to sprinkle rain for about 20 minutes off and on. Then we had to wait for about an hour for the tracks to dry off before they would let the sleds run. So if there is a chance for rain in the forecast, definitely plan around the clouds/showers. Of course you can ride the chairlift back down for the faint at heart, if you just want to take in the view. But all things considered, the alpine slide was the FUNNEST thing we did in South Dakota!!
