ticket prices are expensive, and the top is touristy, but the views on the way down are worth it. Nerve-racking if you are nervous and on your own - you'll be in a gondola by yourself!

My husband and I took the Silver Queen to the top of the mountain. I was amazed at the distance we covered; I think it took close to 20 minutes to reach the top. We were able to see miles off into the distance. There...More

This is a great way to see the City from a different vantage point. The ride is about 20 min up. Defintely cooler temps up on top - would recommend bringing a coat!

Amazing views. Smooth ride. Some gondolas allowed for you to connect your own music to the speakers. The views at the top were breathtaking! Food was good too!

Smooth ride up Aspen mountain with breathtaking views. Elk Mtns are jaw dropping. Sun deck has good food options for lunch and yoga at 11,000 feet is bar none the best ever!

My family of 4 took the gondola ($24/each) to the top in hopes of hiking at the top. Trail map shows quite a few hikes, but most were really just walking paths. We enjoy hiking and were hoping for some good hikes, none there. Restaurant...More

You think you are getting close to the end but the tide keeps going. Almost 20 minutes each way. The ride is as good as the destination.

If you visit Aspen, add this to your bucket list! The gondola takes you out of the town to the top of the mountain. Whether you're skiing in winter or going to yoga at sunrise, this view is worth the ride.

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