Friendly staff offer tips about the mountain as you ride the aerial Tramway to the top of the mountain. Amazing views of the West face of the mountain and of the city below. Easy parking at the entrance to the Tramway. Frequent service with multiple flights per hour. Each flight is 15 minutes to the top of the mountain. A new restaurant and bar is being built at top of mountain and it should open by Fall 2019. Excellent food at restaurant and bar at base of tram. Wheelchair accessible facility including wooden observation decks at the top of the mountain. Also there is a small and free admission museum on the history of skiing in New Mexico, and the New Mexico ski Hall of Fame. The New Mexico skiing museum is located in one room at the base of the Tramway on the first floor of the Tramway terminal building. The Four Seasons Visitor Center at the top of the mountain has been recently renovated in the last 10 years and it has excellent views about the ski area on the east side of moun...

Finally able to ride the tram. Have visited 4 times but every time high winds closed down the tram. We did the sunset ride and it was worth the wait. On the way up the guide was great at giving us facts and making the ride fun. At the top the restaurant is not finished but when it is it will be packed I am sure. Wow it will have one of the best views in NM. Was over a 20 degree temperature drop from bottom to top. A good bit do see up top but most people on our ride just went straight inside to wait for the next tram to take us down. Highly recommend it. Maybe come a little early and get the sunset from the top vs the tram. Ours waited on a few people that were late so we actually missed sunset. But you can take the tram up anytime and walk around and then take the last tram down :).

I have been on this tramway twice: once at night and once during the daytime. Both times were spectacular. At night the Albuquerque city lights were beautiful. During the day time the views of the mountains was unforgettable and when we reached the top we got to play in the snow. Either way, it is worth the money. I'm afraid of heights in general but I felt safe in the tram. You must do this if you're in the area.
