Sunset Happy Hour

Everyone loves a good sunset. Watching the sky go from blue to pink to orange with the mountains around you — it just never gets old! We have some of the most gorgeous sunsets anywhere. How about watching them from 9,000 feet above the Yampa Valley?

Sunset Happy Hour is the perfect place to gather with friends or take your lady out for a drink. Every Thursday night starting in February, take a 15 minute ride up the gondola to the Thunderhead Lodge. Enjoy a drink special, appetizer, and live music along with the main event itself — the sunset! At the end of the evening, take the gondola ride back down as you enjoy the stars and the lights of town. Lift tickets are $15/person with $5 off food or beverage. Season pass holders ride free.

Sunset Happy Hour is on Thursdays from February 8th through April 12th. Gondola boarding begins at 5:00 pm and ends at 7:45 pm. Please note, there is no happy hour on February 22nd, and March 1st.
