The trip up the mountain is fabulous. And the restaurant on top, a one time special meal, serves very good food. If you like to hike, the trail around the mountain has wonderful views and is fairly easy.

I have visited the tram and the restaurant at the top several times over the years. This is a must see if you are visiting Albuquerque, NM. The ride to the top is breathtaking and the views and restaurant are well worth the effort to get there. You can also see and or access the ski resort on the East... More

This is a must! The breathe taking views are worth it. The tram hosts are very informative. The top of the mountain is so beautiful.

The ride to the top was filled with interesting sights. At the bottom of the mountain we were dressed in regular shirts and pants. When we got to the top, we had to put on our coats, hats, and gloves. There was plenty of snow and people skiing! We stayed for an hour and watched the skiers, and then took... More

My family and I went on a tram ride last year in early summer. The weather was warm in town and cool at the top of the mountain. We had two young boys with us who enjoyed the ride and the views. I had trouble with the very crowded tram ride on the way up. It was so packed with... More

Fabulous ride up the Sandia Mountains across the canyons, beautiful views no matter the season. Enjoy a meal at the High Finance at the top or at Sandiago's at the bottom. Certainly an activity for anyone visiting Albuquerque or if you live there. Go for a hike on the crest trail at the top, good for all ages.
