Our gondolas are the perfect way to quickly climb a mountain and take in the view. Running every day between mid-June to early September, the Elk Camp Gondola and Silver Queen Gondola* access free outdoor activities, miles of trails, and delectable on-mountain dining on sun-drenched outdoor decks. Groups are guaranteed their own private gondola, and cars are regularly cleaned and sterilized.
