Where can I ride a Scenic Chairlift?

A few nearby ski resorts offer scenic chairlift rides that link visitors to fantastic views, hiking trails, downhill mountain biking, and an Alpine Slide.

  • Big Sky Resort
    Ride over 1,000 feet from the base area to Andesite Mountain. There are hiking trails at the top of the lift or you can continue on to the top of Lone Peak via jeep and tram. A fantastic network of lift accessible mountain biking trails is also available at Big Sky.

  • Grand Targhee Resort
    On the quiet side of the Tetons and just east of Teton Valley, Idaho, Grand Targhee offers scenic chairlift rides to the top of Fred's Mountain. From the top, you'll feel like you can reach out and touch the Teton Range. To get back down, just hop back on the lift, follow a hiking trail, or bring your mountain bike and take your pick from a few exciting downhill single-track trails.
  • Snow King Resort
    Overlooking downtown Jackson, Wyoming, the chairlift up Snow King Mountain is a great way to kill some time and enjoy epic views. Hike or ride the lift back down. From the base area you can also ride a shorter lift to access the area's only Alpine Slide.
