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.

If skiing, this is the most efficient and speedy way up the mountain. If visiting in the summer it is an easy way to enjoy a spectacular view on the way up and at the top of Ajax Mountain. A reward of some good food at the top at a discount. If feeling mean, then walk up the mountain at... More

As no skiers this was our ticket to experience the spectacular views on the way up and back down as well as from the top. Loading and unloading was smooth. There was no line for our visit. The price of the ticket gets you a discount on food at the top. We had a great time.

Odds are you will meet someone interesting on the ride up. Efficient loading and unloading keeps the line from ever extending very far.

I don't ski, but going upto to the top of Ajax mountain is well worth your time. The view was amazing all the way. You get to see all of Aspen and the surrounding countryside. You can also eat at the top and take your time enjoying the view, you get $10 off your meal with your Gondola ticket.well worth... More

It is locally known as the "bongdola" Much pot smoking. The views are magnificent, Skiing is second to none. Slopes are not dressed like the Alps. Good for some, not so nice for others
