Aerial Sky Rides

Aerial Sky Rides to the summit are open for the summer on June 22nd.

Mount Sunapee is the perfect getaway in every season! Come take an aerial sky ride to enjoy the breathtaking summit scenery. Jump on board our Sunapee Express chairlift and enjoy the trip as you ascend to the summit. Unload at the top and take time to experience the view from multiple viewpoints. Eat your bagged lunch, read a book, or simply relax at the peak. When you are ready to head back down, jump on the lift and enjoy the view all the way to the bottom. The last chair up is at 3:00 pm and the last chair down is at 3:15 pm.

Looking for the perfect family hike? Take your whole family on an Aerial Sky Ride on the Sunapee Express and enjoy a one-mile hike each way on the Lake Solitude Trail over to beautiful Lake Solitude.
