blue routes and green routes sometimes cross and the safest route if you want to stay on green is a little confusing. some of the greens should be blues.

My first gondola ride in Aspen area. And the ride was long but exhilarating. Top of the mountain has a lot of activities for the kids of all age groups. Nice restaurant but was getting closed as we got there a little late in the afternoon - 4ish. Nice views all around. We also saw a marriage party.

Gondola ride was so much fun. It can be deceptive if your going for the first time like us..once you cross the first mountain that is when the fun begins. Do not miss this ride.

Aspen Mountain is beautiful but you have to stand in line and take the gondola and the getting there by car is terrible. Some places on the road you have to make sure another car isn't coming because it is a one lane. In the city it is so crowded you barely can get around. To find a parking space... More

If you're in Aspen for the summer, you HAVE to carve out some time to take the gondola up to the top of Aspen Mountain/Ajax, and just soak in all the mountaintop has to offer for a few hours at least... you have to. And there are a TON of options -- you can hike one of several beautiful trails... More

Don't miss this-great for all ages! Beautiful gondola ride - games for kids and adults at the top - restaurant with a view that is unmatched - photographic opportunities galore - spectacular walking trails - you could spend the day on top of the mountain!

Took the gondola to the top of the mountain. What views! Food was really good, if pricey. Took the nature trail hike and played some bag-o! Somewhat surreal! The trip back down in the gondola provides panoramic views of the town of Aspen.

If you've outgrown bumps and never got beyond advance and early expert, try one of the other mountains in the area. Give a day just for the gondola ride
