Scenic Chairlift Rides

Take a ride up to the top of our scenic Central Idaho ski resort on the Bluebird Express.

You’ll enjoy beautiful views of one of the most awe-inspriring Idaho ski resorts and the surrounding area.

On a clear day, you’ll be able to see all the way from Payette Lake down into Long Valley, all the way up to the Seven Devil’s Wilderness, and even spot Oregon’s Blue Mountains. Spectacular!
