The Winter Sightseeing was awesome for a non skier.

The Winter Sightseeing was a brilliant experience for a family of non skiers to have the opportunity to still see the top of the mountain. The gondola was so much fun to travel up on. Cardrona is an awesome place to see all the winter action. Highly recommended.
