Gondola & Lift Rides

  new pricing 

Experience summer in Aspen/Snowmass!
Gondola rides at Snowmass and Aspen Mountain treat you to panoramic views of the Elk Mountains. Pack a picnic lunch, hike among wildflowers, or take a guided nature walk. Kids of all ages will get a thrill from the Eurobungy trampoline or climbing wall. Let the sounds of live outdoor music soothe your senses while you soak in the surrounding views.

Elk Camp GondolaElk Camp Gondola and Chairlift at Snowmass 
Hop on board the Elk Camp Gondola with your mountain bike and experience Snowmass’ thrilling trail system. Or access 36 holes of disc golf, miles of hiking trails, paintball and even a kid-friendly climbing wall and Eurobungy. The Elk Camp Lift will take you even higher — to a summit of 11,325 feet — where the views stretch on for miles. Sign up for a naturalist hike with the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies and get to know the alpine ecosystem (and its resident marmots) a little better.

New this year, Elk Camp Gondola and the Elk Camp Chairlift will also stay open for weekends in September. Be sure to check out Valhalla Nights at Elk Camp, select evenings in July and August.
