Planning Information

Hiking on Elevated Journey trails is of course free, but if you would like to take the gondola to access the trails, you will need a Sightseeing Ticket or Package.

Before visiting Lost Forest, check the weather and make sure that you have adequate gear to remain safe on your hike and pack your backpack accordingly. Once you arrive at Snowmass Base Village, pick up a trail map at our ticket office or outside of the Elk Camp Gondola. To begin your journey, take the Elk Camp Gondola to the top. After exiting, use your trail map or speak to a Lost Forest employee to orient yourself and begin hiking!
When you arrive at the base, stop by Four Mountain Sports at Snowmass Base Village near the Elk Camp Gondola to rent your discs (if you aren't bringing your own). Once you have your discs, take the Elk Camp Gondola to the top and exit. You must purchase a Sightseeing Ticket to ride the gondola.
The Aerial Approach disc golf course is located in the Elk Camp Meadows area, with the first tee near the top of the enclosed surface lift. It is easily accessed by following the gravel path past the Lost Forest Headquarters. If you have any questions, please speak with a Lost Forest employee and they would be happy to point you in the right direction.
