Concierge.com's insider take:
There's no better perspective on the mountains than from the top of one: The bonus at a ski resort is the ability to save yourself a five-hour uphill hike to achieve that 360-degree view. The Eagle Bahn gondola offers scenic rides from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. (Tues.– Sat.) in the winter. It also runs during the summer months (Thurs.–Sat.), linking up to a warren of hiking and mountain-biking trails.
