We rode the ski lift for the first time over the weekend. The $15 per person fee is well worth it. The views are amazing, and it is so quiet on the way up.Plus, at the top, you can use the highest toilet in Arizona, which boasts an elevation of 11,500 feet! Coming from Phoenix, the clouds, cooler temperatures and greenery were a very welcome change. Be aware that the ride makes occasional stops for people getting on and off at the top. The first time it happened, we wondered if we were going to be stuck. Also, keep in mind that the temperatures will drop as you climb in elevation. The ride is open from 10 am - 4 pm Friday thru Sunday. We arrived at about 10:20 am on a Sunday and were able to get right on. When we got back around noon, there was a very long line of people waiting to get on. Earlier definitely seems to be better. My husband and I can't wait to go back and take this ride again. We will definitely bring our out-of-town visitors here!
