September / October – Adams River Salmon Run begins

2014 is Salute to the Sockeye.  Estimate of 72 million salmon this year!

Even though there are 4 different runs per year, the Adams run in the fall is the biggest and usually the easiest to view (as the river is lower and not so dirty).

Oct. 13 (Monday) – Pumpkin Drop & Closing Day


It’s wild and crazy. It’s our 7th annual Pumpkin Drop! Drop your pumpkin from 500 ft, hit the target and win your chance to spin the big prize wheel. Anyone who brings a carved pumpkin rides the tram for free! Come spend your Thanksgiving (and our last day of the season) with us!

Our place is a lot of fun for the whole family. If you want to see some of it for yourself check out these video clips on YouTube!
