Aspen Mountain will once again offer skiing and riding as part of continued summer operations this weekend, Jun. 8-9, with 130 acres of terrain on a 58-inch base depth.
The Silver Queen Gondola will be open for sightseeing and the Sundeck, located at the top of Aspen Mountain, will offer food and beverage options as well as a DJ on the deck Saturday.
The gondola will operate from 9 a.m.—4 p.m. for sightseeing and the Ajax Express chairlift will run from 9 a.m.-1 p.m., as long as conditions permit, for laps on Aspen Mountain’s upper blue runs as well as black runs such as Summit and Blondie’s. Everyone will be required to download on the gondola.
For those skiing and riding, lift tickets are $54 a day. Sightseers pay $27 for a 1-ride ticket or $32 for a weekend ticket providing unlimited rides Saturday and Sunday. Children under three are free. Aspen Snowmass Premier passes as well as six and under passes provide free access for both skiing/riding and sightseeing. School and AVSC passholders are also eligible for free access for both skiing/riding and sightseeing but must call or a visit a ticket office to validate their pass prior to accessing the gondola. Discounted pricing for Flex, Double Flex, Classic, Club Escape, Ikon, and Mountain Collective passholders is $27 for skiing/riding, $13 for a one-ride sightseeing ticket and $16 for a weekend sightseeing ticket.
Four Mountain Sports in Aspen will be open for rental and retail. All ski and snowboard rentals are half price and ski and bike packages are available at a discounted rate. Ski and snowboard equipment can be picked up after 2 p.m. on Friday for weekend rentals.
