Aspen Mountain Summer Activities
Experience summer in Aspen Snowmass! Gondola rides at Snowmass and Aspen Mountain treat you to panoramic views of the Elk Mountains. Pack a picnic lunch, hike among wildflowers, or take a guided nature walk. Kids of all ages will get a thrill from the Eurobungy trampoline or climbing wall. Let the sounds of live outdoor music soothe your senses while you soak in the surrounding views.
Silver Queen Gondola on Aspen Mountain
Over at Aspen Mountain, the Silver Queen Gondola whisks you from the beating heart of Aspen — with its superb shopping, fascinating galleries and top-flight cuisine — to the serene summit of Ajax in minutes. Give a few sun salutations from 11,200 feet with a yoga class at the Sundeck, or simply savor the views of the breathtaking Elk Mountains. Naturalist walks, the highest disc golf course in North America and bluegrass concerts on Sundays round out the roster atop Aspen Mountain.
