On a hot summer's day, one of the best things to do in Palm Springs is to take a ride from the dry desert floor with the Aerial Tramway, 5,873 feet up into the cool climate of the San Jacinto Mountains. Come and ascend into a pristine wilderness aboard the world's largest rotating tramcars! Truly one of the greatest experiences in Southern California!

The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway offers a friendly and unique experience with rotating tramcars. When you are the Mountain Station, there are a variety of hiking trails to choose from. The weather is cooler at higher elevations, so it's important to bring warm clothing.

Great attraction with awesome views! Bring a sweatshirt for the top! It gets cold. Fun for the whole family. The floor spins slowly so that everyone gets a great view.

Views were beautiful and well worth the $30.00 price. Staff very friendly and helpful. Snow was 5ft deep and packed. Went snowshoeing, lucky that we brought our own because rental shop was closed that day n most of trails were closed. We did hike the Desert View Trail n it was well worth it. Beautiful views n such a amazing surroundings. Definitely recommend taking tram to top and enjoy the views. Plan on coming back soon in spring to hike to Hidden Lake. Got some great ideas for hikes from staff n other visitors. Had a wonderful day!!! Tip: dress warm at the top!

Absolutely incredible! The tram ride was incredibly safe and fun. It provided 360 degree views due to the rotating floor. Unfortunately the view at the top was foggy but the trips up and down were still well worth it.

Did this on a last minute whim with my buddy. We got tickets but had to wait 2 hours (which was fine as it was a Sunday). We sat and chatted at the base. The tram was cool…12 minutes base to top covering about 2.5 miles and about 6,500 vertical feet. The floor rotates very slowly so you get to see every thing around you. A really cool experience especially since they had 6 feet of snow at the top. Great views of Palm Springs and the surrounding area & mountains. Definitely recommend this activity.

The tram ride is excellent - smoothly rising to the peak & slowly turning so you can see 360 degrees. Visitor center at both ends very nice spaces to view and snack. Frustrated by TripAdvisor ticket because it did not offer a senior discount OR the ability to select your time. Had to stand in line to exchange voucher for tickets, then wait 2.5 hours to actually go up.

Fun and interesting. Next time I will arrive earlier so I have more time at the top and more cold weather clothing.

The tram trip up and down. I managed to get by a window. The views were amazing. See the depth of the mountains, the snow on some rocks and looking down to get a visual of height.

We went on the tramway in February. We bought the ticket on -site and were on the tran within minutes. No problems. Once on top of the mountain, we were rewarded with gorgeous views of the valley and lots and lots of snow! It was a pleasant change from all the desert scenery. Stay for drinks and a meal. The bars and restaurants are quite good.
