This is a fantastic family outing for all ages. Take in the view of the Purcell Mountains and the dramatic Mount Nelson (it's the highest peak across the valley with the flat top) on a relaxing chairlift ride on the Mile 1 Express. At the top, stop for some pictures or enjoy a hike. You can then return to the village by taking the chairlift back down.

Please do not ride the chairlift with people who are not part of your household, family or chosen social bubble. We will not be pairing individual riders with others.
