Went on a Gondola ride up to the top. Nothing but beautiful!! The gondola ride was thrilling and run by a bunch of friendly and helpful happy smiling faces! Husband is an asthmatic and only found it to feel like a heaviness on his chest, so don't be afraid to go up if you have the same issues. The gondola... More

Yes, yes, yes! This is really a fun activity for any age. We took the gondola up on a hot sunny day in August. The views were spectacular from the top of the mountain. Fun to get a picture in the snow, but no jacket needed. There is an interpretive center a gift shop and a small deli at the... More

Last time I got on a bike and rode downhill was sixteen plus years ago. So I was very apprehensive riding up in the gondola, Michigan does not have mountains. The view from the top was exhilarating and some what scary. Shouldn't have worried, rent the right bike,wear a helmet and right gear, even when you take a tumble, which... More

Nice! Good views took the gondola to the top of the mountain, over 10000 ft elevation. Takes about 2 hours to get a nice experience. A little pricey, for 2 seniors $54.

This is a great get-a-way spot! Lots of hiking, kayaking, and beautiful scenery. Close to interesting spots like Tosemite or the ghost town of Bodie--Highly recommend it!!!

One of my favorites on the to do list, hit the village for wine tasting or October Fest. Check the Callender for dates. Sites and biking camping or logging all is good.

This is such a fabulous place to visit and there is so much to do for every person with an interest in the outdoors. We took the gondola ride from Mammoth Mountain Resort up the ski slopes to the very top and it was a beautiful ride. It did get a little windy but that just added to the excitement... More

On another TripAdvisor recommendation, I went up to the Minarets Viewpoint about a mile past Mammoth Mountain ski area. I was not disappointed with the view, but I failed to heed the warning that it gets cold quickly, so remember to take a sweater or jacket!
