Scenic Chairlift Rides
11:00 am until sunset
(Last Ticket Sold at 8PM) Get a breathtaking bird’s eye view of the valley and Allegheny Mountains from our chairlift. The picturesque landscape becomes even more so in the fall as the leaves change and surround you in a sea of color. It’s the best seat in the house. Ride the lift both ways, or get to the top and hike the two miles back to base camp. Whichever you choose, you won’t be disappointed. Please note: Guests are required to wear close-toed shoes on the lift.
Star Gazing Party
Introduction to telescopes and types of accessories. Bring your own binoculars or telescope to gaze at the stars in the night sky. Guests may use provided telescopes if they do not bring their own. Build a star chart, learn the basics of stargazing. *We suggest guests bring a light jacket, snacks and water.
