We were in Aspen during the government shut down. Really sad to miss the amazing Maroon Bells--we were in good company with many people wondering why a county road got shut down. The very special people at Silver Queen Gondola offered free rides to the top. The gondola was nicely enclosed and my height phobic husband with some claustrophobia issues rode with comfort. The light snow the day before contrasting with the amazing fall color was memorable especially for Los Angelenos.

Even if you do not ski, do not miss this ride, yes there is a cost but when you ride and appreciate the maintenance required, you won't want them to short a penn

This is always a must when in Aspen. The views are fantastic!!!! Look around town for $5.00 off coupons. If you can not find them you should be able to book online to save $5.00 per person.

One should not miss a Gondola ride while in Aspen.... beautiful to see the gorgeous town & the surrounding mountains from the top. Very scenic & perfect for some photos moments.

We were surprised by the cost of a gondola ticket (28 per person). The gondola is dog-friendly. There were a LOT of off-leash dogs at the top of the mountain, which got a little annoying at times. There were some beautiful views at the top, and some nice hiking and outdoor fun activities.

expensive ticket but well worth it.....loved the view and spent the afternoon walking around and sitting on patio with a glass of wine. Very cool temps in September; need a jacket but absolutely beautiful. The ticket up also includes a free Gondola ride in Snowmass mountain so that was a nice surprise......very nice Gondolas too...enclosed and very roomy...long ride up!
