Sightseeing Chairlift Rides


Please note the Champagne Express is closed for the remainder of the summer season. The Mile 1 Express will run as planned.

Going up!

Enjoy a scenic ride on the Mile 1 Express chairlift to an elevation of 5,300 feet. Once at the top, take in the breathtaking view of the Kootenay Rockies or venture along one of several alpine hiking trail options. 

This is a fantastic family outing for all ages. Be sure to stop at the Mile 1 Hut for a coffee, snack or lunch to enjoy outside while taking in the view across to Mount Nelson (it's the highest peak across the valley with the flat top).

New for 2017!

If 5,300 ft. isn't enough, continue on up on the Champagne Express Chairlift, which is open on weekends, to 7,100 ft. From there you are only a short ascent to the summit of Panorama and it's well worth the hike! 

Dates of operation 2017
