I couldn’t believe it when my friend told me that the BreckConnect Gondola is free to ride. I had to check it out myself. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that she was absolutely correct. The 121 gondola cars transport people 391 feet from the town to the mountain on the 7,592 foot long system. We had an enjoyable and scenic ride on the BreckConnect without having to break the bank. It was both relaxing and a great method of transportation between downtown, Shock Hill and Peak 7 and 8. First we rode to Peak 7 and 8, spent time on the mountain coaster, and then went down to the town, before riding back up. I loved watching the way the gondola cars passed right over the streets so close to the cars when we drove in the area.
Now during the COVID pandemic the gondolas were running as usual and masks are mandatory the entire time in Breckenridge, even in the gondola.
