We are open on Saturdays & Sundays for summer fun including scenic gondola rides, downhill mountain biking, adventure activities, workshops, and events!  Buy an e-ticket for our activities in advance for terrific savings!  Keep in mind your 17/18 season pass includes unlimited gondola access and hiking when available.  Make your own candle in our family-friendly workshops this Saturday (and August 26), a scenic gondola ride is included!

We are excited for extensive renovations to three of our lodges!  The size of the Saddle Lodge is doubling, the original 1967 gondola unloading station at Gore's summit is being transformed into a warming lodge, and we're expanding the Northwoods Lodge.  Be sure to stay in touch to keep up with all of our projects and improvements as they progress!

During the warmer months, we happily host weddings, reunions, corporate parties, and other types of gatherings which can feature mountaintop happenings and our year-round catering services.
