If ride the tram - get tickets online to save $5. We were so disappointed that we didn't get to spend but maybe 15 minutes on top of the mountain. Several storms were rolling in from the back side of the mountains. Finally the tram crew agreed to take up one more group but really wanted us to come straight back down. Since the rained had stopped they let us get off in time to grab a waffle (don't bother unless really hungry) and look around. We were informed that if we didn't take the tram down we may be stuck up there or have to walk the 7.6 miles down the mountain. We obeyed and glad we did since we went into the Mangy Moose Bar/restaurant and within a few minutes a bad storm with strong winds and hard rain came down obscuring the whole mountain. So if you our worried about the tram ride don't be. The staff controlling the tram were super nice and safety came first. We even had a person whose asthma was acting up and they talked very sweet with her and told her they couldn't guarantee she would do well on top and that they just used up the last of their oxygen on top with another lady who they had just made an emergency run to bring her down to the waiting ambulance. We had friends that went up earlier that day when it was sunny and decided to walk the 3 mile hike to The Deck. The got lots of sun, got hailed on once, rained on twice and a little scared towards the in. They said the trail was wide, loose rock on a gravel road but if you are not accustom to the altitude you probably shouldn't do and make sure no matter the weather when you start out take your rain coat and plenty of water. Say the last part of the hike is all up hill so be in decent shape.
