The area is beautiful. We took the tram up to the top of the mountain, from which you have great views of 7 glaciers in the surrounding mountains. There are trails available if you want to hike up the mountain, too. The lodge at the base is beautiful, although we just walked through it. Definitely worth the money to ride the tram up and see the view!

If you like nature and come to Alaska, this is a must. Depending on the time of year you can see skiers, snow boarders and snowmobilers or para sailers jumping off the mountain side. The view is nothing but breathtaking. Take the tram to the top and you will see where Olympians travel to train and practice. Absoulutely fabulous.

Even if you are not the resort guest, take the tram to watch the view. If you like mountain biking, you can go downhill with the bike. Can also hike up and down. Don't miss!!

We took the cable tram to the top and back, the views from up here could be truly spectacular but on a clear day only, the clouds kept on coming and going making visibility tough. What views we could see were simply sensational, there is a restaurant at the summit.Great ride and commentary both up and down the mountain.
