Open-Air Gondola

Open-Air Gondola

Available May 6- October 28, 2017
Travel in an open-air gondola and be even closer to the sights and sounds of this historic adventure. Bench-style seating facing out accommodates five across. Because of the unpredictable mountain climate and the increase in elevation from Durango to Silverton, we strongly encourage you to dress in layers of clothing. Silverton (9305') usually averages about 10 degrees cooler than Durango (6512').

Adult age 12 and over: $89*     Child ages 4-11: $55*

Skyway Tour (Bus/train combination) (May 6- October 28, 2017):

Children 3 years and under: No charge if not occupying a seat.
*Fares subject to 7% historic preservation fee.

(Licensed events such as Polar Express and Peanuts™ events are excluded.) As an added bonus, backpack fees are waived for Season Pass holders! Great for those who need to pack extra gear for overnighting in the wilderness.
