This is a wonderful relatively short tram ride that even people with fears of height can easily cope with. The price is reasonable at $10 for adults. We had lived in the area for 10 years and had to have friends visiting from Boston to...More

This is found on the Continental Divide towards the top of the Monarch Pass. It only cost $10 each to go to the top, and is well worth the ride. There are great views from the top (on a nice day) and every staff member...More

This was a great, inexpensive way to see some great views on top of a 12,000ft. mountain. If you don't like rides/heights, you will do fine. It is chilly at the top, even on a warm,hot day. The drive to Monarch Pass was a great...More

Inexpensive tram ride that has scenic views of the mountains. Highly recommend to do this trip once. The gift shop had the normal visitor items, but also had some unique items.

A jacket is recommended due to the wind. We had lots of fun looking at the different mountains from the observatory deck. The staff was very friendly and happy.

Ten dollars well spent. You can park and walk to the top or you can ride the tram up and down, or walk down. At the top, you'll be treated to a great view of the valley below. The weather can be quite brisk, so...More
