The lift rises 698 metres (2,290 ft.) from the 1,583-metre (5,194-ft.) level to the 2,281-metre (7,484-ft.) summit ridge in 8 minutes. The Summit Complex includes observation decks offering stunning panoramic views, an interpretive center with natural and cultural history exhibits and a multisensory theater that treats audiences to a thrilling flight over the surrounding mountains by simulating an eagle’s point of view.
