The 3.2 mile Berry Picker hike goes from Lionshead Village to the top of the Lionshead Gondola. The first quarter to half mile is fairly steep going out of Lionshead Village, which will really get your heart rate up. Don't panic, as the hike evens out and goes through the woods and across ski trails. The hike up can take anywhere from 2 – 3 hours. Once at the top, you can get food and drink at the restaurant at the top of the gondola and then ride the gondola back down to Lionshead Village for free. If you take the gondola up and hike down, you will need to have a ticket for the gondola.
