Great scenery while enjoying a comfortable ride. If you don't have a good head for heights, give it a miss

“Love the ride up the hill”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Particularly the red cabins with docking stations and music! Good view of a lot of the runs which helps you pick which trail to ski, and to spot the spills!

“A "Must Do"”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

Anyone looking for info on Aspen will find that some sites say the gondola only runs during summer and others say that it's year round. The website for the gondola company doesn't work (or didn't when we went), so we decided to go there in person and check it out. They were indeed open and they do operate in the winter. The ride in the gondola is very nice with lots of beautiful views. You can open the window on the side and take very nice pictures of the landscape, mountains, slopes, etc. The price is good too. If you are in Aspen, make sure you take an hour or two out of your trip to ride the gondola up to the top of the mountain.

“Great fun Summer and Winter”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

So much fun for kids and adults alike. Great views and fun rides in the red gondola cars which have music playing and you can ever plug in your own iPod. Good for skiing in the Winter and in the Summer some great entertainment for kids up top, as well as the restaurant. Free ride down if you're able to hike up!! Slightly pricey tickets, but if you are going for more than one day, but a weekly pass, you will save right away!
