Mountain Tap Gondola Dining…
Gondola cabins are available on a first-come, first served basis through mid-May. We’ll be putting the gondola cabins away for the summer but don’t worry… they’ll be back in the autumn!
A fun, unique and completely mountainy experience
You say you didn’t get your fill riding the gondola on the ski mountain this winter? We’ve got you covered! This past winter, Mountain Tap added to its patio three refurbished gondola cabins, offering a private, unique and safe dining opportunity complete with fresh craft beer and wood-fired cuisine!
- Each gondola cabin seats one party of up to 6 adults comfortably and could fit 2 additional kids with a squeeze.
- Each gondola cabin has its own blue tooth speaker so you can choose your own music.
- Each gondola cabin has a small heater for chilly spring evenings.
- Pets are not allowed within the gondola cabins. No outside food or drinks. No smoking within the gondola cabins.
About Mountain Tap’s gondola cabins…
Our gondola cabins previously shuttled skiers at Killington Ski Area in Vermont. The ski area upgraded the cabins on its K1 lift in 2018, and the old gondola cabins eventually made their way to Colorado. Mountain Tap Brewery worked with The Gondola Shop, a gondola restoration company in Fruita, Colorado to obtain our three gondola cabins. Much of the mechanical equipment in the cabins such as the door mechanisms, cables and kerosene floor heaters was removed. Then we equipped each cabin with an electric heater, twinkly lights and a blue tooth speaker. We constructed the tables from the same beetle kill pine used to make Mountain Tap’s signature indoor community tables. We crafted the door handles from old bike crank arms. The gondola’s original bench seating remains intact, as does the unique artwork on the exterior, designed by Vermont artists decades ago.
Sanitation and Safety
We allow 15 minutes between parties to thoroughly sanitize each gondola cabin. With nothing but smooth, hard surfaces on the interior, you can be assured that this is getting done right. We also open the doors and run the fan for a bit to provide an air changeover.
