Imagine staring at the stars and seeing a meteor shower in a beautiful, dark, mountain top setting!  Join us for this unique and amazing Perseid Meteor Shower viewing & mountain top camping experience.

Your experience starts at 4 pm in the plaza, check in at Winter Guest Services, load your gear and then it’s up the Elk chairlift to your camping area to set up your campsite for the evening (hosts are available to assist).

After a guided hike you’ll enjoy a delicious dinner at the Bear’s Den, followed by some special meteor shower programming.
