Always a treat to enjoy the view on the gondola, it runs in the summer too. Typically starts running 10 to 15 minutes before the advertised time so get there early to squeeze a little extra out of your lift ticket.

This is an amazing trip up Mt. Aspen. You catch amazing views of the town and at the top you see amazing creation. Stop in the Sundeck for a great lunch as you soak in the view.

Well worth the cost to take a gondola to the top of Aspen Mountain. The views in both directions are spectacular - especially in the summer. Hint: Buy the pass that allows unlimited use for the gondola rides and the bus to Maroon Bells.

This is a must do for anyone visiting Aspen Colorado. The Gondola ride up to 11,212 feet is spectacular. At the top the Sundeck offers great food, coffee and of course, mountain views.

Well with the price to see Aspen both up the mountain and down the mountain. Once at the top a nice drink at the Sundeck is a must!

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