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.

You can warm yourself nicely when taking a break in the gondola. They are fast, and efficient. We learned that every 6th car is red ... these offer Bluetooth technology for your music. Who knew???

Rode to the top just to see all of the aspens and their turning leaves. Very beautiful! Strolled around the top for a little bit before heading back down. There are several food and beverage options while on top.

This Gondola ride offers really great views up to the ridge top which then permits great photo opportunities of the Main Range at about 12000 feet. The operators made entering and exiting quite easy and the ride is quite smooth, particularly for the Wedding Party...More

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
