Enjoy a scenic ride on the 8-passenger Mt. Rainier Gondola! Watch from above as skiers and snowboarders fly down the mountain below you. Pass by tall Evergreen trees and get a birds eye view of the surrounding mountain peaks covered in snow. You’ll travel almost 2,500 vertical feet to the summit where you will find breathtaking views of Mt. Rainier and the Cascade Range. You’ll also be just a few short steps away from the Summit House, Washington’s highest elevation restaurant. Foot-passengers (non-skiers) are welcome to ride the gondola anytime during the winter. Skiers and snowboarders are fascinating creatures and don’t be surprised if you get to sit next to one on the ride up! Look like fun? Give skiing or snowboarding a try! We have everything you’ll need for your first day on the slopes. Remember to check the current conditions before planning your gondola ride on our Weather & Condtions page. Weather can change quickly and the gondola can close early or without notice when it’s windy or stormy.
