Aspen Mountain Summer Hours

Gondola Hours: 10am–4pm

The endless views from the top of Aspen Mountain let you revel in the peaceful splendor of the Rocky Mountains. From the heart of downtown Aspen, the Silver Queen Gondola delivers guests to the Sundeck at 11,200 feet, where endless vistas and flower-laden hiking trails await. At the top of the world, it’s easier to find your center.

Please Note: Due to construction on Aspen Mountain, we will be opening for sightseeing slightly later than previous years, on July 2, 2021. However, we invite you to join us for sightseeing at Buttermilk on weekends, Friday - Sunday, May 29 - June 20, 2021. Enjoy priceless views of Pyramid Peak and incredible dining at the Cliffhouse Restaurant. + Explore Buttermilk
