Mid-June gives loads of beautiful wild flowers, whether you walk up the mountain or take the gondola. Same for the view from the top (see photos). Highly recommended. BTW, if you walk up, you get a free gondy ride down (until about 4:30).

Enjoyed the hike with Hank my Lab. I like going up the Ute trail rather than directly up the tram area. Nice to ride the tram back to town.

My husband went skiing while my 2yr old and I rode up in the gondola to the top. Beautiful view and great pics. My husband enjoyed the skiing.

Aspen is one of those musts for Colorado skiing. It's top notch in terms of amenities but the skiing is great as well.

Great outdoor area to have a drink located at the base of the gondola on Aspen Mountain. Can't beat the views!
