What’s the Aspen Gondolas?
Aspen Gondolas are the easiest and most scenic way to climb the mountains. If you love exploring nature and wish to discover all the beautiful vistas in Aspen, then the Gondolas are the way to do it! There are two different gondolas you need to be on the lookout for: The Elk Camp and the Silver Queen.
When Do They Run?
Do not mix them up with the usual winter lift chairs that take skiers and snowboarders up the slopes – these gondolas run exclusively during the summer, between the months of June and September. The Elk Camp Gondola runs daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the Silver Queen between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
What Activities Can You Access Via the Gondolas?
Both gondolas are your gateway to outdoor fun. Here are all the activities you can access from each:
Elk Camp Gondola
Silver Queen Gondola
- Sundeck Restaurant
- Hiking trails
- Yoga and Meditation Classes
- ACES Live animals and Jammin’ Shows
- Classical Music Saturdays
- Bluegrass Sundays
- Disc Golf
