Reviewed September 29, 2012 via mobile

There is not many things to do in Aspen in offseason so this ride is a must. Scenery is great. Price of 26$ on my taste little bit high but it's a really long ride so that must be a reason for it. Otherwise great experience

“Best Ride Up”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

The Silver Queen Gondola is the best ride up the mountain. What happens in the gondola, stays in the gondola.

“Excellent views take you to fun trails at top”
Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

We were glad that the Gondola operates in September...although only on weekends. The scenery was spectacular and the cars are clean and comfortable. We bought lunch at City Market and ate on top while we hiked. All in all a beautiful day. Our Lodge gave us a discount coupon for the Gondola so be sure to ask.

“Beautiful ride to the top of Ajax/Aspen Mountain”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

This a really fun thing to do in Aspen. Gondola ride takes about 19 minutes with just the 2 of us in the gondola car. Beautiful vistas and nice hiking at the top, especially in the Fall when the aspen trees are changing. We had lunch at the Sundeck, Aspen Mountain on the terrace overlooking Aspen Highlands. Really memorable.

“Great views”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

We hiked to the top of Aspen ski mountain and took the Silver Queen down the mountain. If you get to the Gondola the ride down is free. The views are awesome on the ride down. The cars are clean, have wifi and iPod hook ups so you can listen to your own music. Stop at the Deck for a while and enjoy the views of the Maroon bells and 4 other 14,000 ft peaks. The food inside the Deck is great and reasonably priced.
