We were reluctant to do this, as it seemed pricey at $38 a person. We are so glad we did. Seeing Tahoe from the top was great. At basecamp, they were running a chairlift to the very top, 9,700 feet - the views were really amazing there! The air was so clean, the pines smelled so good. It was our favorite thing we did in Tahoe. Every staff person was very friendly.

The gondola ride may seem a little pricey, but it's a great value for what you get. The views from the top are not to be missed! Once at the top, you can take a free open-air chair lift further up the mountain. Would highly recommend this activity.

The ride itself is lovely but if you just want the view from the top it is possible to drive and/or walk. We didn't work this out until it was too late
