About the Scenic Gondola

Scenic gondola rides have ended for the 2020/2021 winter season. Click here to learn more about summer scenic gondola rides.

Take in the dramatic scenery of Northern Arizona from a bird’s eye view on the Arizona Gondola. As the lift travels up to 11,500 feet, you can see the cinder cone volcanic field, the red rocks in Sedona, and as far as the Grand Canyon on a clear day. The gondola ride offers great opportunities for photography, observing skiers and snowboarders, or just enjoying the fresh air and expansive views from the San Francisco Peaks. Please note there is no unloading at the top terminal in the winter season.


All tickets must be purchased online in advance and quantities are limited per day. Rides are offered from 10am to 4pm during the winter season, weather permitting.
