Magic Mile Sky Ride

Home / Ski Area / Magic Mile Sky Ride

The Best View of Mt. Hood and Beyond! One of our most popular summer activities is a ride on the Magic Mile Chair Lift to the mountain’s 7000′ level – no skis or snowboards needed! The spectacular view of Mt. Hood, Palmer Snowfield and nearby Mt. Jefferson is one you’ll never forget.

Allow 30 minutes to ride up and ride down, or 2 hours if you choose to ride up and walk down. Spend as much time at the top of the lift as you like before returning to the Lodge. However, for tickets purchased within 15 minutes of closing, this option is not available.

The Magic Mile Sky Ride is closed for the season. Times of operation are dependent on weather and conditions and subject to change at any time. Please check our lift status page for daily operating schedule.

There is still snow on the mountain and the temperature can be cool on Mt. Hood, even in the summer. Please dress appropriately for current weather conditions.

Tickets are available for purchase at the Mile Ticket Office, located at the base of the Magic Mile Chair Lift.
