Summer in Snowmass is beautiful at any pace of life…

The Elk Camp Gondola is a fully enclosed 8 person Gondola that whisks you away from all the buzz of Snowmass Base Village(8,475ft) to Elk Camp Meadows and the Elk Camp Restaurant(9,765ft). Cool breezes flow through the cabin as you fly above trails, forests, mountain bikers, and zip lines. The views keep getting better as you ascend the mountain. You will soak in vistas of nearby ridgelines throughout the Roaring Fork Valley. You may even spy some far off snow packed peaks across Colorado. Foot passengers can go even higher to the top of the Elk Camp Chair(11,325ft). From here, a few short steps gain a vantage point for awe-inspiring views of the Maroon Bells.

At Elk Camp Meadows you can gain access to The Lost Forest and a myriad of activities. Rock climbing, the Breathtaker Alpine Coaster, Zip Lines, a high ropes course, downhill & cross country mountain biking, Disc Golf, hiking, fishing, or just soaking in the alpine air. All these activities surround the Elk Camp Meadows, a relaxed grass lawn with yard games, a large deck with fresh farm to table style food from the Elk Camp Restaurant, and just the right amount of mountain vibe.


Whether you are looking for a relaxing exploration of the mountain with a ride on the Gondola, or you are seeking your next mountain thrill, a day at the Elk Camp Gondola is perfect for the whole family.

You can even bring your best friend.
