Elevate + Enrich Your Summer, Naturally Escape is closer than you think. Find yourself in an alpine oasis where grizzlies freely roam, and unobstructed panoramic views prevail.
Leave the crowds behind and soar to 2101m (6893 ft) any day of the week on our sightseeing gondola – your ticket to an array of mountain top activities. Embrace the stunning scenery – grand glaciers, lush carpets of wildflowers, crystal-clear springs - and observe wildlife in their natural element on your way to the summit. From there, choose your own adventure whether that be immersing yourself in a complimentary interpretive program, indulging in a mountain-top meal, or booking a guided hike enriched with lessons about the flora, fauna, and deeply rooted history of the Rocky Mountains.
