Scenic Chairlift Rides

Take a Scenic Chairlift Ride in the Green Mountains


Enjoy a fun and comfortable ride to the summit of Mount Snow aboard the Bluebird Express while taking in the surrounding views. Once at the top, you can explore the alpine environment or enjoy a picnic on the observation deck of the summit building. Round trip scenic chair lift rides are available on weekends (and select weekdays – see schedule below) throughout the summer, weather permitting. Call 802-464-4040 for more information.

Some guests enjoy taking the chairlift up to the summit and then descending the mountain at their own pace. Your efforts will be rewarded with magnificent views of southern New England and New York State.

All self-guided hikes utilize the resort’s expansive trail system on the Main and Carinthia mountain faces.

For safety reasons, Mount Snow reserves the right to deny ski/scenic lift access to riders who cannot properly fit in a rescue harness – please call 802-464-6640 for details.

The Bullwheel, located on the second floor of the Summit Lodge will be open Friday – Sunday with live music on Saturday evenings!  Enjoy $5 off at The Bullwheel with the purchase of a Scenic Chairlift Ticket.  For more information, click here!
