Owner description: For great views of the surrounding area, hop aboard this popular gondola that takes 18 minutes to get to the top of Aspen Mountain.

The Aspen gondola moves quickly and smoothly. You get a fairly long ride. The scenic view at the top is great. You can see the whole valley of Aspen on the gondola. It is an expensive ride though at $28 (combo ticket with the Maroon Bells bus).

If you have an afternoon to spend and are skied out--which can happen if you are in Aspen for more than a few days--consider having lunch at the top of Ajax at the Sundeck.

To get there, buy a "foot pass" from the ticket office at the bottom of the Silver Queen Gondola. For $26 you can have unlimited access to the lift.

Once you are at the top, the view is spectacular when the weather is clear. The food is pretty good, especially the chili. My favorite part of it is the full bar, which includes some good local brews. I spent a couple hours today watching some Sunday football and watching the skiers come and go.

Borrowed from EatAspen.com: Cafeteria-style eatery serves wok fare, pizza, fresh daily stews and soups, specialty salads and sandwiches. By night, enjoy an evening of dining and live entertainment at 11,000 feet with our. Friday night dinners contact the Aspen/Snowmass concierge at [--].

The pass also gets you access to several other lifts on the sister mountains, but I didn't make the trip to any of the others.
