The Steamboat Gondola transports you to Thunderhead, 9,100ft above sea level, to a celebration of an amazing Steamboat sunset from high above the Yampa Valley floor. It’s a can’t miss Steamboat activity and one that will bring you back time and again. Take in the scenery, enjoy the culinary delights, listen to live music, and toast the sunset.
Beginning late July, sunset happy hour is open on most Thursday and Sunday nights through August, and most Friday and Sunday nights in September. Attendance is limited and regularly fills-up early so plan accordingly. The cost is $15 which includes your ride on the Steamboat gondola plus a $5 credit towards food and drinks. Happy hour tickets can be purchased in the gondola entrance as you board.
