One of Aspen's most exciting experiences is the splendid Silver Queen Gondala. A climb to the top of Aspen Mountain is an absolute delight for every visitor. Conveniently located at 520 E. Hyman Avenue the Silver Queen Gondala eagerly awaits your arrival.
The Silver Queen Gondala is in operation year round. In winter take a trip to the top to ski Ajax Mountain, snowshoe Richmond Ridge or relax in the warm sun at their beautiful Sundeck Restaurant overlooking the mountainside. At a height of 11,212 feet life is delightful. During warmer months check out the hiking trails, disc golf, giant chess and checkers lawn games, corn hole, yoga and meditation. If these don't quite suit your taste perhaps ballooning, paragliding, fishing, rafting, kayaking or golf will pique your interest. But if you are more enticed by quieter pursuits you are sure to enjoy the Classical Saturday and Bluegrass Sunday concerts.
Aspen is more than just a resort community. It has been the site to many historical events. Starting with the late 1800's silver boom years, the early 1900's period of ranches, to the late 1940's with the beginning of the Aspen Skiing Company. Since 2002 this has been the site of the ESPN Winter X games. Aspen is anticipating these games to continue for many year to come.
The Aspen Silver Queen Gondala ride will be a long remembered event in your life. Memories of dinner at the number of fabulous restaurants will linger on for years. There is an abundance of package deals for the Gondala to suit the needs of everyone. If you find yourself nearby make this a must see activity.
