Keystone Scenic Gondola Rides


Enjoy the panoramas of the continental divide and River Run Village without taking to skis or boards. The covered gondola will slowly take you up the mountain side as you watch the skyline pass by. Climb not one, but two mountains via two covered gondolas. The first peak you will come to is Dercum Mountain; stop and check out the views before you climb into the Outpost Gondola to go to North Peak.

From Dercum Mountain you can see the bold ski runs down North Peak and clear to Lake Dillon. The Summit House Dining and Warming Area await you there with refreshments if you would like to stay a while. A viewing deck and picnic area also greet you on the opposite edge of the snow; don’t forget your camera as this is wonderful spot for a photo.

Another gondola ride overlooking skiers and riders takes you to North Peak. At your final destination you will find signature dining options the Der Fondue Chessel and the Alpenglow Stube. Enjoy their popular bunch, or lounge in the plush leather seating area with a spiked cocoa.
