The Sandia Peak Tramway is a must do while you are visiting ABQ. It is a great way to see all of ABQ and more. I would call before you head there. Depending on the winds they could shut down the tram at any moment but they will also open back up once the winds on the mountain calm down.

Go just before sundown and enjoy the most gorgeus sunset from the mountaintop restaurant with dinner or just drinks\! They used to give a discount on the ride if you had reservations for dinner at the top! You can also ride one way and hike down, tho that is for the experienced hiker, for sure! Not something you want to... More

I have been on the Tram dozens of times- still a beautiful ride, but they should give us locals a discount. Locals bring out of town friends and family, but there is no discount ticket price for the locals......boo

Several trips on the Tram over the years and it never stops pleasing me. The views are great and the staff excellent from ticket issue to tram "pilot". Don't miss it if given the opportunity.

this tram takes about 15 -20 minutes to ride and is really smooth and high. This thing holds about 20 people and a great way to spend the afternoon. There is a restaurant up there called High Finance, hence the bill will be pretty high. It's ok but too overpriced. The drinks were good.

Visited on an overnight stay ... Loved the tramway... No queues and staff were very friendly... Great to see snow as Australia was in the middle of summer.

The Sandia Tram is one of the best ways to see the Great Southwest from almost 11,000 feet. On a clear day, which there are many, you can see 11,000 square miles. My favorite time to ride Tram is 45 minutes before sunset. There is still enough light to take pictures on the way up and when you arrive at... More

Always take any of our visitors on the tramway. Always well operated efficiently and safely by skilled staff. Gorgeous views of the Sandias - sometimes mountain wildlife - and of the valley on the way down. Try to get in the front of the gondola on the return trip for best views. During skiing season don't ride between 7-9am or... More
