Up to four guests per chair can enjoy the spectacular display of fall colors while relaxing on a deliberately slowed down chairlift ride. The lift will transport guests to the mountains summit and back down to the base. One of the most spectacular views offered are those of Monument Mountains rocky heights. The round trip lift rides cost $5 per person and last about 45 minutes. Lift rides are available from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. (For guests safety lift will not operate during thunderstorms or high winds).

In addition to the spectacular chairlift rides guests will be able to visit Ski Butternut’s Ski & Snowboard Shop which will be hosting its largest sale of the season. Great deals abound on winter clothing and gear with special savings of 20 -75 percent off last years products as well as a $25 boot table which always proves to be a big draw.
