Silver Queen Gondola Information

The Silver Queen Gondola rises from the base of Aspen Mountain to its top. This 6 passenger gondola takes skiers on a 14 minute ride that ascends more than 3,000 vertical feet.

The base of the gondola is located in downtown Aspen, just above the lift ticket office and the Little Nell Hotel. This plaza is located 1 block away form the Ruby Park Transportation Center.

The Silver Queen Gondola is open to foot passengers during the summer and winter months. The gondola operates daily during the summer, and on a limited basis during the spring and fall months.
