The Mt. Lemmon Ski Valley ski lift is open as a Sky Ride, Thursdays through Mondays, during the summer. The Sky Ride to the summit and back takes about one hour, and travels from 8,200 feet in elevation to 9,100 feet in elevation. Watch for wildlife and summer birds. Mt. Lemmon Ski Valley is the southernmost ski area in the United States, and, compared with the Tucson valley, temperatures here are 30º cooler in the aspen and Ponderosa pine forest.
Mt. Lemmon Ski Valley is a small enclave of shops with the Iron Door restaurant, the Miner's Sweet Tooth café selling homemade cookies and fudge, Grub Stake patio café (open on weekends). The Sky Ride is located a 30-mile drive north of central Tucson, on the slopes of Mount Lemmon in the Coronado National Forest.
