We took the tram to the scenic top--but that was not enough for my kids we had to hike to the snow level and throw snowballs. It was amazingly beautiful!

We rode the tram on our way to Seven Glaciers Restaurant. It was free with a restaurant reservation. The views were breathtaking and enhanced a wonderful dining experience.

Tram runs about every 15 minutes all day until 1am. View on top is absolutely breathtaking. 7 glaciers lounge and dining is awesome and tram operators are informative and pleasant.

Breathtaking views of mountain peaks above tree line, lush rainforest, and Turnagain Arm on a beautiful day. Then, careful exploring along snowpack in July. We were on the lookout for bear and moose, but didn't see any.

My husband and I bought the $35pp tram tickets that include a $20 credit at the deli at the top of the tram. The team itself was cool and clean and the views were spectacular. We chose to take the ride on a day that was partly cloudy, and visibility turned out to be great. At the top, we got... More

I am totally afraid of heights but the tram had such breathtaking views it was amazing. Worth the trip up. A bit pricey for families but it's a little cheaper a bit later in the afternoon.

If you hike up to the top the ride down is free. It's an Ariel tram so you get some nice views while on it, but the treat is really getting to the top of the mountain for the view.

Great tram ride- we had nice weather the first day and enjoyed it. We went the second day where it was fogged in and not worth the ride (the second day the tickets were part of a package from the hotel Alyeska). So if the weather is decent the tram ride is a must.
