Was totally worth going for the gondola ride. Adult sightseeing pass cost 32 $, ride was all closed and warm so we had no problem taking it with our 13 month old. Breathtaking views at mountain top , sun deck had decent food items available.Would definitely recommend it.

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.

Took the gondola up and sat for a spell in the lodge. Very nice and the views in the dining area are spectacular.

We reached at 3.55pm. 5minutes before they were closing the gondola rides. The staff waited for us to rush and get tickets so that we can make it up on the last gondola trip for the summer season. Really appreciate the staff accomodating us. The ride was great , we could see the fall colours and they views were great.

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.

We loved the gondola ride to Aspen mountain. The ride up and down was amazing it was about a 20 minute ride each way, you can see over the mountains surrounding Aspen. There is a nice little cafe up there called the Sundeck where we had a glass of wine. It felt so peaceful. The view was simple spectacular. The... More

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!

On a brilliant blue sky day in Aspen, we went up to the top of Ajax for lunch at the Sun Deck. We played bocce, corn hole and strolled around the top paths looking at Majestic views. Someone was making beautiful music on a giant xylophone. Mainly just to take in the vistas of Highlands bowl and Aspen and Independence... More

Friday afternoon. At $20 each, it's worth the trip. If you're afraid of heights, you may want to avoid this as there is a lot of air between your gondola and the ground. Once at the top, there's not much there. The nature trail is really nothing. There are some children's games, like large chess pieces and chimes. For me,... More
