As the gondola makes its way over the hills, catch sight of the stunning Colorado views. Snap pictures of the scenery or selfies during the 15-minute ride.
Once your gondola reaches the top of the mountain, there’s plenty of optional activities to pick from (own expense), such as tubing or ziplining. You can also snag a bite to eat if you’re hungry (own expense).
After you’re done exploring the Vail Mountain Resort area, take the gondola back down to Vail Village.
