Very hard to get to if you do not have a parking pass. There is public parking at Mill Street but do not try to park near the gondolas because it's nearly impossible. It costs 20 bucks to go up. The ride may make you feel a little uneasy in some areas where the gondolas are pretty high and when... More

I was a little reluctant to try the gondola ride but braved up and did it. Sooo glad I did. The views on the way up are spectacular and once at the top of the mountain you can walk around a bit and see more of the views and the snow capped mountains. Don't miss it.

Nice long ride up and back, and had a great lunch and a little exploration on top of Ajax Mountain. Fantastic views, beautiful scenery, absolutely worth the time and the $18!

This is a Great thing to do while in Aspen. It is located right in the middle of alot of shops and is just fun as can be. You ride to the top with 2 or with a group of people. You can even plug in your I Pod and have your own music. When you get to the top... More

This is a very long gondola ride! The views are really stunning. I was surprised by the price as I had read here that it was $6. Turned out to be $18 each. There's a restaurant at the top which is also very pricey. But then, this is Aspen and everything is overpriced.

Breathtaking views if the weather is great. Nothing to dislike. The gondola ride and views are amazing.

The views on the ride up are spectacular. If you are not skiing, you can download and still enjoy the ride.

Beautiful views were work the price of the gondola. Got a deal which included discount meal at the top, bus to Maroon Bells and Snowmass Gondola as well. The food at the top of the mountain was actually quite good. Although it was summer time, there were free children's activities at the top of the mountain as well. Be warned,... More

The views are stunning! Perfect is you are not a skier like myself. We paid $30 and received coupons for the restaurant at the top of the mountain. The gondolas were quick and efficient. The staff working was hysterical! Be prepared to take tons of photos.
