Autumn in Wisconsin

chairlift icon

THANK YOU FOR VISITING. FALL RIDES ARE COMPLETE FOR 2021.

Fall color enthusiasts flock to Rib Mountain State park to experience the best of Wausau in Autumn, and there’s no better spot to see the rich oranges and yellows than from one of the highest points in the entire state. And when you ride our chair, you’re free to get off at the top and walk around the State Park before hitching a ride back down.

Join us at the conclusion of your ride at the Historic Chalet Deck and 10th Mountain Division Hut for some burgers, brats, fall draft selections, yummy sweets for the kids and more!

NOTE: DUE TO HIGH DEMAND, THESE TICKETS MUST BE PURCHASED IN ADVANCE!

Ride Details and Location

The Comet Express Chairlift can hold up to six people on a chair and will be operating at a slower pace so guests of all ages and abilities are able to fully take in the views. This lift is located outside our main base area and has safe loading and unloading ramps. Our Lift Operators have the ability to slow down or stop the lift should you need assistance embarking or unloading at either terminal.

PLEASE NOTE: We are not selling or redeeming online purchases for the Scenic Chairlift Rides at the top of the mountain. All guests must pick up a wristband at our ticket windows and ride the lift from the base area. The Rib Mountain State Park Office is now open for the foliage season. Visitors must have a sticker or a daily pass to enter the park via the access road but we will not allow downhill, then uphill use of the lift this season.
