Great place for skiing! Very helpful staff lift - always help with skis at the entry and exit out of the cabin. Queues practically never there. Nearby there are lockers for storing boots and skis, a convenient place for changing and storing clothes. Before the entrance handing out free coffee, sometimes sunscreen, and upstairs offer hot apple cider (non-alcoholic!), a... More

We need to upgrade our music inputs, most are broken, We should probably do a bluetooth. Gondy is excellent. Wicked view, happy days all around. Get to meet interesting people from all over.

For a little over 30 bucks, we had a beautiful view from the gondola and $10 off of lunch at the top. We loved the experience! Got some great pics right from the lunch table. The $10 credit is actually a great deal and the food was good. Since I don't ski anymore, this was the next best thing.

Went there on a foggy snowy day so there as practically no visiblility from the top. It's a good deal even for non skiers like me. With food coupon and decent gondola ride it's worth every penny. It's really scenic all around.

the Gondola is in perfect spot right beside the little nell which is where I stayed. Just walk out and 50-100 feet to the Gondola for nice warm and comfortable ride to the top of the mountain. Easy on and Easy off. Lots of things to do right at the bottom. Also something I loved is you can grab a... More

This was a lovely way to spend the morning. Gondola tickets were approx 30pp and children 6 and under were free. The ride is longer than you would expect and the views from the top are beautiful. It's a nice way to see the views, especially if you aren't skiing. You also receive a $10 vouch for the Sun Deck... More

If you are not a skier but want to see the best of Aspen this is the way to do it. We were there the day it opened for the season which I believe was pretty ordinary last year. It is a good journey up to the top, and the eatery was full but we managed to get an outside... More

Took a ride up on the mountain on Nov. 27, 2015 as the snow started falling.....it was beautiful! The ticket to ride was $30 pp roundtrip and also included $10 to use at the restaurant at the top. We ordered a few drinks ($10 for a bloody) and had a bowl of delicious chili ($10 a bowl, used the credit... More

It is pricey, even if you just want to ride up and not even ski. But the views going up, down and all around are priceless. We rented snowshoes and then rode up Silver Queen to the summit, where the Sun Deck is. It was a 15 minute ride and the distance is about 2.5 miles. Once we were up... More
