Great way to see the view

My husband and I took the ober tram ride up the mountain to see the views. Be sure to go early so it's not as crowded. Was well worth the $26 for the both of us to be able to see... read more

It's a little confusing getting to the top as you drive through what seems like residential areas but once you get there the views are amazing! $5 to park and $13 per adult to ride round trip, this was a perfect way to make sure we saw it all!

We were very disappointed with this attraction. We waited over an hour to get on board and by the time we got up there, everything was closed except the ice skating rink and wildlife thing and it was getting ready to close so we chose ice skating for the kids. They should have told us this when we purchased our... More

I'm told there is no indoor skating rink yet there are photos of one on the net. Is the Ober Amusement Park and Ski resort two different places or does the indoor ice rink no longer exist. In addition, if there is an indoor rink are there coaches there too. Thank you.

We enjoyed a family and friends day here today. Loved the snow tubing and the mountain coaster, very good time for the whole family. The kids also did some ice skating while we were waiting. People were friendly which is always a plus.

I have been riding on the Tram since the early 80's. I love the little shops at the top. Lots to do with the kids. Highly recommend!

It was sad that snow was really missing this year. But my nephews were just learning so for the first experience was worth it. I do not recommend use of the tram I will drive and park at the sky area. The lines and the cost per person are too much. Food is terrible.

Went on the cable car up the mountain for the views. Great trip in the fall, colours were amazing. Fantastic view of the town and surrounding area. Not a lot to see when you are up there unless you want to try the little bob carts on rails! Used mainly in the winter to get the skiers up the mountain.... More

My college age grandsons enjoyed the skiing. My daughter and I took the tram to the top and were saddened to see quite a few burned out cottages and a couple of large resorts.

I have mixed feelings on this attraction. The gondola ride up is interesting though overpriced. That being said they could use that money to renovate the venues at the top which seem to be rather dated and a bit run down. After the gondola however you can take a ski lift up to the top of the mountain (for an... More

We are sorry that you found our facilities outdated once you arrived, we have been working very hard over the last 5 years to update as our finances allow. On average, we reinvest over $1M every year in improvements. Yes, there are areas on the Mountain that are over 50 years old and we will continue to work to improve... More
