We took the tram to the peek about an hour before sunset. The views were breathtaking. "Hint" skip the restaurant at the top. There is also ski lift off the backside but was not running when we were there. High wings will cause the team to close so if you may want to call or check the weather before you... More

If you travel to Albuquerque this is a must see. You travel by team from the valley up to the ski area. At one point the tram is 1100 feet above the ground. This is open year around and there is a good restaurant at the top.

The Tram is awesome! Every time I have out of town company - I take them up the Tram during daylight and come down after dark! Two totally separate views! All the lights of the city twinkle because of the atmospheric conditions! Not too many places in the world that you can see that - and from the top of... More

25 dollars and 15 minute ride up to the top of Sandia peak will be your treat. The views are great especially on a nice sunny day. And it will be chilly. One can also feel touch of altitude sickness aka soroche. Nothing to worry about, one can only lose his/her balance and fall, break the legs doing it, or... More

A must-do in Albuquerque on a clear day only. We arrived at 10:30 on a Saturday and had no wait. When we left after lunch at 1:30 there was a very long line. Don't be dismayed the tram runs every 15 minutes. The ride to the peak is 15 minutes with 360 degree views. Once you are on the top... More

Beautiful clear day. Allow time to take short hike then have a microbrew and snack at the bar with Eric.

Don't let your fear of heights keep you from taking the tram to the top of Sandia Peak. The 15 minute ride is a breeze and you will be rewarded with spectacular views you will never forget! Do take the 1 1/2 mile trail to the Kiwanis Cabin. The trail is well traveled and you will be greeted with the... More
