We have some exciting improvements going on atop Aspen Mountain this fall to enhance your experience, from exciting remodeling projects to necessary maintenance work. We regret that in order to complete this work we will need to end our Aspen Mountain summer operation a bit earlier than normal, with the last day being Labor Day Monday, September 5. If you are looking for an on-mountain experience after this date, be sure to check out Snowmass where the Elk Camp Gondola and Chairlift will continue to run on weekends through October 2, offering spectacular views into Willow Valley of the Maroon Bells. All lifts will be back in action for the winter season.
