Longest and steepest gondola I have ever been on. Good views on way up and down and from the summit. Tip is to buy the passport pass which gets you into all venues over a few days or longer and 20% off the bob sleigh ride.

I walked up from the Bobsled runs, and stumbled upon the summit. Was a nice excursion, except a little buggy and hard to find the overlook just below the summit.

We've been to the Colorado Rockies many times and have ridden lots of gondolas, but this one seemed more steep and exciting than most. The views from the top were really great!

So we ended up hiking Mt. Van Hoevenberg. Its an out-and-back, moderate hike with some steep inclines, leading you to great panoramic views of the high peaks, only issues with this hike was a long segment of very muddy wetlands around some stagnant water (lots of mosquitos), so be prepared.

A little pricey to get into to, but once you travel to the top of the jump it's crazy. I can't imagine jumping. During the summer you can watch practice off to the side when they jump into water. As with the other sites here they really charge a lot to get in.
