The tramway is easy to find and parking is easy. A little annoying was the fee to enter the park - only $1 but the tramway ride is $20, $17 for seniors. The ride is only 15 minutes and the view from the top was gorgeous except for the haze over the city in the late afternoon. There is a... More

We took the tram up in January, the bottom was clear bit the top was snow covered. The ride isn't cheap and the gift shop prices were the same. However, the view out is absolutely stunning, both of Albuquerque stretched out below and the peaks around. They do skiing from the top but lack of deep snow has this as... More

Amazing views! Must do when visiting! No wait on a Friday morning in January. The operator had a lot of info to share on the ride up and down.

We had the pleasure of riding the tramway to the top and enjoyed it very much. The scenery was fabulous both up and down. The facilities at the top of the tramway were great and appreciated.

We rode the tram up to High Finance for dinner & also explored the mountain top since it wasn't ski season yet. The views were amazing!

Don't waste your time and money eating at the top. Overpriced and very so,so food and service. Kind of "you got no where else to go" attitude. Wait until you go back down the mountain.

This is an absolutely gorgeous view. I almost didn't go because I am not a fan of heights, but I am glad I did. The tram moves relatively slow and doesn't sway too much (just a couple of spots and the operator gives you a heads up). The trip is pretty quick, but not so much that you miss the... More

We only had one day to go here and it was no visibility at the top, but the ride up and down had such great views it was worth it.

This is perfect to take visitors. Go to the top for a good meal and sunset. Make sure you visit the gift shop at the bottom of the Tram. Also remember to take a camera. You can see wildlife. Do not go on the Tram when there is big wind.
