Perhaps the quintessential Aspen experience, a ride up the Silver Queen Gondola to the top of Aspen Mountain, is a must for every visitor. In winter, ride to the top to ski Ajax, snowshoe Richmond Ridge, or relax on the sun-drenched Sundeck. In summer, activities abound - hiking, disc golf, kids' games, concerts and more. For Aspenites, life at 11,212 feet can't be beat! Or give Snowmass a try...a quick 10 minute ride up the Elk Camp Gondola will give you access to amazing hiking and mountain biking trails in the summer!
