My 9 year old and I visited just past the peak fall foliage period. A large hay and pumpkin character greeted us at the entrance to the ski park. Still lots of colors to view and we had a beautiful sunny day. The ride up the mountain in the gondola was awesome. The skies were clear and we were able to see for miles around. At the summit, we were treated to more views of the mountain range. There was an area from which to take pictures or you could do some hiking along the ski runs that lead to higher areas of the mountain. Some people had mountain bikes to do this. Not sure if they rented them or they brought their own. The gondola takes about 45 minutes round trip. Not sure which was more breathtaking: the ride up or the ride down the mountain.
