“Great scenery”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

About a 20 minute ride each direction. At top, full restaurant and bar. Small climbing wall, and worlds highest frisbee golf. Gondolas are warm inside, not great if it's warm outside.

“Too expensive”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

$30.00 to take a gondola to the mountain top! Really? Forget it! Our next stop was Telluride where it's FREE.

“This is a complete rid-off”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

After enjoying the FREE gondola ride in Telluride - we were shocked at the amount of money we paid to get to the top of the mountain in Aspen. We paid, of course, and had lunch at the top. But come on - it was way too much money. I'm not a cheap guy and this, to me, was the rip-off off the trip.

“A beautiful ride”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

You can't go to Aspen in the summer without taking a ride up to the top of the mountain. Beautiful high alpine hikes and the sundeck to relax in and have a bite. Amazing mountain scenery.
