Everyone who goes to Aspen must take the gondola up to the sundeck atop Ajax/Aspen mountain. Eat lunch or go before 10AM for free yoga on the deck.

For $24 a person we took the Gondola to the top of Aspen mountain. It was about a 10 minute ride to the top. We enjoyed a great lunch at the top of the mountain. The view at the top of the mountain were breathtaking.

I did a lot of hiking in Aspen so I was relieved to let the gondola take me to the top of this great mountain. The view from the top was lovely.

We took the gondola up to have a late lunch. Last trip up is a 4:00 and the restaurant closes at 3:30. Staff at the restaurant were rude. Loved the gondola staff and they were very helpful. The view is beautiful!

This gondola is open in the summer. At the price of $24, I was skeptical at first. But, it was worth every penny! The ride takes about 15-20 minutes. As we climbed, we could look backwards and see the Aspen valley. It was a clear...More

The regular Four Mountain lift ticket covers all lifts and gondolas. A "foot pass" for non skiers is available for a reduced price.
