“It's certainly a great place to put one”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

It was a lovely trip up, and the activities up top were great for the kiddo (school aged). The gondolas both needed minor repairs, and the windows weren't terribly clear. It was a great first experience with mountain lifts, but I wouldn't do it again.

“well worth the trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014

We decided to take the Silver Queen Gondola to the top and do some of the short hikes. It was a good experience. The ride is smooth and scenic. The top of the mountain has a restaurant and many activities including hiking trails. We took the nature trail which was short and well marked. The view of the surrounding mountains is spectacular. Well worth the trip.

“Fabulous views!”

The nature trail is well marked and the wildflowers abundant.
The views were breath-taking. Remember it is cooler at the top!

“Fabulous views of Aspen Mountain on the Gondola!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

Fun ride on the gondola with great views of Aspen and Aspen Mountain. We stayed on the mountain to enjoy the stunning views and fresh, clean, crisp air! Fun for families with children; there is a play area with rock climbing, bungie jumping and swinging.

“Beautiful in the Summer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

I enjoyed this ride so much! Views are spectacular! I purchased the "Summer Package" which includes a voucher for the restaurant at top + you can ride the gondolas located at Snowmass and tickets for the bus to the Maroon Bells.
