Scenic Gondola


Explore a new side of Arizona

As the gondola travels up to 11,500 feet, 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.

Scenic gondola rides are available Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM on the Arizona Gondola. Lift tickets start as low as $29 when you buy online and in advance.

*Winter Scenic Gondola rides are round-trip only with no unloading at the top.


How long does the ride last?

Each round-trip ride is approximately 10-15 minutes. Guests are not allowed to unload at the top of the Arizona Gondola during the winter season. Guests who have purchased a Scenic Gondola ticket are not allowed to ride with skiers and snowboarders.

Can I use my season pass to ride the gondola?

All season passes are valid for skiing and snowboarding only and cannot be used for Scenic Gondola rides.
