A few that we tried were; a jeep tour into the mountains, a ride on the ski lift, horseback riding in the mountains. One can fish, 4x4, ride ATV'S, hike, bike, explore the... More

We had a blast all day summer tubing, riding the Chair Lift, and riding the Pioneer Flyer! But the Gold Line pass for $69, so you ride everything unlimited times for a day!! The employees were trained well and friendly.
