The tramway ride is amazing. We went up on late afternoon, enjoying a clear view of the entire valley, then watched the shades of pink and purple blanket the view at sunset. The ride down at night is spectacular with the valley looking like a sea of lights. However, skip the "ride and dine" optional ticket. The food offered in the cafeteria style restaurant was not good. Lasagna was burnt and tasted like the frozen variety, veggies were canned and over cooked. Overall, an underwhelming meal in a beautiful setting. BUT - don't miss the tram ride - exciting and amazing view!

There are always good reasons to take the tram. In winter, it's the closest place to play in the snow. In the summer, it's the best way to beat the 120 degree heat. Just remember the temp is about 20 degrees colder than the valley floor if not more. Dress appropriately. Also- take snacks. There is food available at the top, but it's overpriced and not terribly interesting. Except for the hot chocolate- good anytime.

What a fantastic time and an amazing view. We visited the Tramway and had a wicked time. Not for the fainthearted and forget it if you've not got a head for heights. You travel up the side of the mountain in a revollving cabin. Watch for the bumps as you pass the pillars.
Great views from the top, and a wonderful day out.

If you are travelling to Palm Springs, I highly suggest taking a trip up the Aerial Tramway and take I the exceptional views of the mountains and Palm Springs area. The ride is one of a kind and once your at the top, the scenery is amazing!

Beautiful views when you are ascending and descending in the tram. Enjoyed being able to go to the snow without driving in it.
