“Incredible Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Took the gondola ride with family to the top of Aspen Mountain. Some of my children are too inexperienced to ski Aspen, but we wanted to see the mountain anyway. We took plenty of pictures and ate lunch in the lodge. Everyone loved the views of the town below and the incredible mountains on all horizons. Worth the ticket price.

“The Aspen Town main ski area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

Fantastic small gondola access providing 3 mile top to bottom runs if you want them. No learner areas as such, but plenty of easy skiing up the top, and if you don't fancy the 3 mile run back, you can always come down in the gondola

“world class racing and Skiing mountain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

80% Expert, 20% Intermediate, NO BEGINNER. Great 3 & 4 Star Black Diamond for upper back Bowls. Steepest ski area in Aspen. They use to hold 24 hours of Aspen , where there was a 24 hour Downhill race with 30-50 teams. You can almost ski off bottom of mtn into downtown shops, (ALMOST). One of my favorite mountains once I ski a few days somewhere else.

“Absolutely Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

This is such a beautiful mountain!!! I am not the best skier but just ok. I couldn't really ski the entire mountain, but took the gondola up and skied the blues up top all day. Just make sure they don't shut down the gondola for winds or anything, or you may be skiing all the way down unplanned. If you are an excellent skier, this is awesome skiing. The rest of our group preferred this mountain most days.
