Up and Away

Escape to the mountains and take a ride up to the top of North Peak on our Chondola for sweeping views of the Sunday River Valley and Mahoosuc Mountains, including the third highest peak in Maine, Old Speck. On the way up, you can choose to ride on an open chair or in an enclosed gondola cabin. Then to head back down, ride in a gondola or walk down one of our hiking trails. The Chondola is dog, kid, and grandparent-friendly, so you'll want to pack up your whole family for this scenic adventure. 

Lift rides are available from 10AM-4PM on Saturdays and Sundays from early July to mid-October. You can buy tickets online in advance, but will need to pick up your tickets upon arrival. You can also purchase tickets on-site at South Ridge Lodge. Lift tickets will be issued until 3:30PM. If you plan to ride the lift back to the bottom, please load before 4PM. 

Take in the Views

Purchase tickets online or at South Ridge Lodge when you arrive. Special pricing available for groups and tours with advanced reservations.
