If you are visiting Snowmass without a vehicle, there are various transportation options to make sure you can get where you want to be, when you want to be there.
Sky Cab (Skittles) Gondola Hours, Winter 2022/23 Season:
The Skittles gondola provides free and fun transportation between the Base Village and Mall areas. It will run daily beginning Thursday, November 24th, 2022 through Sunday, April 16th, 2023 from 8:00AM – 9PM.
Please note that the Aspen Snowmass area does not have a significant Uber/Lyft presence. We recommend not relying on those shared ride providers as your primary mode of transportation.

Travel By Rail
Experienced travelers say AMTRAK’s California Zephyr route is the most beautiful train trip in all of North America, and as you climb to the sky through the heart of the Rocky Mountains you’ll find it hard to disagree. Certainly, it’s the most comfortable way to travel between Chicago and the mountain towns of the west. Whether you travel for skiing in winter or hiking and sightseeing in summer, as you twist past the narrow canyons and towering peaks of the Rockies, or follow the Colorado River through a breathtakingly beautiful mountain wilderness, you’ll consider the train ride less a means of transportation than a destination itself. The Zephyr makes daily stops in Glenwood Springs, just 40 miles from Snowmass Village. Call 800-USA-RAIL, or visit www.amtrak.com.
