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.

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.

It was a really cool experience to go up this tramway. It is about 15 minutes going up to the top and the views are incredible. The gift shop at the base was cute. They are rebuilding the restaurant at the top, but the one at the base is still operating. Bundle up if you don't fair well with cooler temperatures; the top of the mountain is at least 15 degrees cooler than at the bottom. Make sure you are hydrated as well because if you aren't, you may start feeling ill due to the high altitude [over 10,000ft above sea level].
