Stratton Launches New Gondolas
Fall foliage leaf peepers will be first to ride in Stratton’s shiny new gondola cabins as they soar to the summit of southern Vermont’s highest peak daily through Columbus Day, October 12. With seats for eight, the gondola runs 2,000 feet to the 3,875 foot summit of Stratton, where hiking trails include a gentle 1.4 mile loop to the historic firetower. Views from the top stretch clear across four states and mountain ranges: the Adirondacks, the Berkshires, and the White and Green Mountains, now in a blaze of fall color. Discount tickets are available at stratton.com. The last trip up starts at 4:30 p.m. While at Stratton, check out the Columbus Day Chili Cookoff, Brewfest, Vermont Field Days and live music on two stages. For more information, visit stratton.com.
