Great view, awesome ride

The aerial tramway was great, beautiful views and wonderful photo opportunities. I do recommend taking a jacket as it is quite chilly at the top.

Interesting to go from desert go alpine. Fun to be above the planes taking off at psp. Was with a few older people and this is good for seniors. Drop them off at the door then park to save them the uphill march in the parming lot.

The Aerial Tram is an amazing outing. The ride up and down is a engineering marvel, the view from the decks are spectacular and the restaurant is also pretty exceptional. Wildlife abounds up there and there are miles and miles of hiking trails if you are so adventurous or you can take a lunch up there for a short hike... More

Awe-inspiring tram ride from the desert to the pine trees. Many visitors to the Palm Springs area miss this attraction, but it's really something to experience ... well worth the very fair price. Once at the top, plenty of easy mountain forest hiking! Do this - you will be happy you did! :)

This is a must if your in the Palm Springs area in the summer time or anytime of year! The temperature can be about 20 degrees different from the desert floor. It's a great place to spend a full day!

Visited with two friends. One had never been, one had been once and it was my third time. Cold, with 6 inches of snow, at the top. Had lunch in the dining room. It is good but pricey...not surprising since they have to haul everything up on the tram.

The tram was a peaceful ride with beautiful 360 degree views on the way up and down. Once we got to the top, there were lots of places to play in the snow and go sledding. Restaurant had lots of options for food, (but not enough healthy ones.) A wonderful side trip, well worth the cost. Only downsides are they... More

Any time of the year is a great time to take the tram up to the top. Beware if it's windy as they will close it down - all for safety first. ALso, take a jacket as it's pretty cool or cold up their. Beautiful hiking!

Great desert views and walking trails for all. Steep inclines at the Mountain tram station may be bothersome for some
