Purchased the sightseeing ticket which is valid for 1 day in Aspen and Snowmass and includes $10 lunch credit per ticket. We took the silver queen gondola to the top of Aspen mountain, very scenic ride and enjoyed lunch at the Sundeck.

Unfortunately, the Gondola is open on weekends only, around October 1st. I tried to paste the hours, but couldn’t paste it. Google Aspen Chamber, you’ll find the info there. Good luck
