Our gondolas are the perfect way to quickly climb a mountain and take in the view. Running every day between mid-June to early September, the Elk Camp Gondola and Silver Queen Gondola* access free outdoor activities, miles of trails, and delectable on-mountain dining on sun-drenched outdoor decks. Groups are guaranteed their own private gondola, and cars are regularly cleaned and sterilized.

We are all living in a world full of uncertainties. While Aspen Snowmass cannot guarantee you a risk-free experience, by each taking personal responsibility, respecting each other and adhering to all local, regional and state health and safety guidelines we can collectively reduce the risks to our guests, our employees and our community. All guests are required to read and comply with the Pitkin County COVID-19 policies and procedures. To read, click here.
If you cannot follow these policies and procedures, you will be asked to leave Aspen Snowmass property.
- Wear a face covering when you cannot maintain 6 feet of physical distancing outdoors, in designated areas and when inside Aspen Snowmass buildings.
- Adhere to Pitkin County social distancing regulations.
- Stay home if you are sick or at high risk.
- Leave immediately if you begin to show signs or symptoms of illness.
- Recreate within your ability to reduce the chance of injury.

In these times we all must make decisions that work for ourselves and consider our own risk profile. We look forward to having you join us at Aspen Snowmass this summer, but want to make sure that you do so fully informed and in a manner that works for you.
