If this is the Gondola that goes to the top of Aspen Mountain, it is the highest one I've ever been on. Beautiful views, but if you are at all anxious of heights, a little nerve-wracking. It stopped when we were on it for about...More

For $24 a person we took the Gondola to the top of Aspen mountain. It was about a 10 minute ride to the top. We enjoyed a great lunch at the top of the mountain. The view at the top of the mountain were breathtaking.

I did a lot of hiking in Aspen so I was relieved to let the gondola take me to the top of this great mountain. The view from the top was lovely.

We took the gondola up to have a late lunch. Last trip up is a 4:00 and the restaurant closes at 3:30. Staff at the restaurant were rude. Loved the gondola staff and they were very helpful. The view is beautiful!

I went up to hike. I took the Nature Trail and then headed south along the Richmond Ridge Trail. Overall, it was about 3 miles of walking along a mountain ridge at 11,000 feet with amazing views on either side of the ridge. Amazing hike....More

Stayed at the RLN, so the admission was free. This was the highlight of my trip. Once we got up to the top, we had an amazing lunch overlooking the mountains. If you're in Aspen, this is a must-do!
