This gondola runs smoothly and takes you from the bottom of the ski hill to the top. It keeps the wind out and your warmth in. It moves skiers quickly through and the RF gates helps speed up the lines. It has dual side access which helps with the crowd control. All around a nice ski experience.

Great activity to do when you're visiting Aspen. It takes about 15 minutes to reach the top of the mountain, had lunch when we got up there and relaxed for a bit before coming back down. Breathtaking view at the top, well worth the time.

I love the fact that the gondola in Aspen goes from the bottom all the way to the top of the mountain. There is rarely a line.

Great place for skiing! Very helpful staff lift - always help with skis at the entry and exit out of the cabin. Queues practically never there. Nearby there are lockers for storing boots and skis, a convenient place for changing and storing clothes. Before the entrance handing out free coffee, sometimes sunscreen, and upstairs offer hot apple cider (non-alcoholic!), a... More

We need to upgrade our music inputs, most are broken, We should probably do a bluetooth. Gondy is excellent. Wicked view, happy days all around. Get to meet interesting people from all over.

For a little over 30 bucks, we had a beautiful view from the gondola and $10 off of lunch at the top. We loved the experience! Got some great pics right from the lunch table. The $10 credit is actually a great deal and the food was good. Since I don't ski anymore, this was the next best thing.

Went there on a foggy snowy day so there as practically no visiblility from the top. It's a good deal even for non skiers like me. With food coupon and decent gondola ride it's worth every penny. It's really scenic all around.

the Gondola is in perfect spot right beside the little nell which is where I stayed. Just walk out and 50-100 feet to the Gondola for nice warm and comfortable ride to the top of the mountain. Easy on and Easy off. Lots of things to do right at the bottom. Also something I loved is you can grab a... More

This was a lovely way to spend the morning. Gondola tickets were approx 30pp and children 6 and under were free. The ride is longer than you would expect and the views from the top are beautiful. It's a nice way to see the views, especially if you aren't skiing. You also receive a $10 vouch for the Sun Deck... More
