This is a must do activity as the views are outstanding, no matter the weather. The world's longest aerial tram rises 4,000 feet in a matter of minutes . In the winter there is skiing =, and the remainder of the year there is hiking at the top, with restaurants at the base and the top. Be sure to carry... More

This gondola ride is worth every penny of the admission price. Saw a jack rabbit scurry below us. We went up close to sundown, and the view was incredible. Enjoyed seeing the variety of micro environments. Our guide was funny and informative. The elevation is enough to lend some thrill to the experience (as our guide quipped, "We're as high... More

I always go up the mountain everytime I am in abq. They renovated the carrying carts although the older ones were just as good. its 20 bucks to go up and its worth it

A very smooth ride up the mountain. The view was indeed fantastic & the host shared info on the ride up. I felt the cost for the ride to be on the high side...basically, you rude up, you spend some time at the top enjoying the view & you ride back down. You can also take your car up the... More

We intended to take the tramway to the peak but a storm rolled in and we decided not to get on it with the lightening (we didn't check but it may have even stopped running for the duration of the storm). But after the storm was over we decided that the view was so good from the lookout at the... More

We took the tramway up to Sandia Peak as an activity for our mini-vacation. It's a fun ride on what's billed at the US' longest tramway, starting at about 6500 feet above mean sea level (MSL) and ending at over 10,000 feet MSL. You get a great view of the City of Albuquerque from the top, as well as the... More

Nice big tram up to the top of Sandia Peak, fast & very stable ride up, long long span over 900 feet high at on point. Nice restaurant (High Finance - cute name) on top with good food & views of Albuquerque way below. Plan your trip at sunset if you can. The whole face of the mountain glows reddish-gold... More

I have been on this tram five times and loved it ever time. Easy up and easy down. They offer special discounts for Seniors and Military so a added bonus. Overtime a friend comes into town this is our first stop to get the big picture of ABQ.

The tram is the best way to really "see" Albuquerque. I'm not a skier or hiker, but even so it was a fun experience to ride up to the top and see the wonderful views.
