Mount Sunapee Sky Rides 2017

Sky Rides

Mount Sunapee is the perfect getaway in every season! Come take an aerial sky ride to enjoy the breathtaking summit scenery.  Jump onboard our Summit chairlift and enjoy the trip as you ascend to the summit.  Unload at the top and take time to experience the view.  Eat your bagged lunch, read a book, or simply relax at the peak and when you are ready to head back down jump on the lift and enjoy the view all the way to the bottom.  The last chair up is at 3:00pm and the last one down is at 3:15pm.
