The Daylodge parking area will continue to act as the staging area for on-mountain improvements requiring that the any unauthorized vehicles be towed from the premise as we continue to move forward on our capital projects on the mountain.

Hiking & Scenic Chairlift Rides
There are two ways to get to the top of a mountain: your own two feet or a scenic chairlift or gondola ride. Colorado ski country supplies both.
Many of Colorado's resorts offer guided and unguided hiking opportunities this summer. With beautiful trails zig-zagging up the mountain, summitting a peak has never been so rewarding.
Be sure to bring your camera on your chairlift or gondola ride to the top of one of Colorado's beautiful resort peaks. There's no easier way to snap those postcard-worthy photos.
Head to one of these resorts for hiking and chairlift & gondola rides:
