We had been the night before and the tramway was closed due to high winds and staff thought it would be closed the following day. We took a chance -- went for lunch and were so happy the winds died down enough that the tramway...More

My husband and I rode the tram and greatly enjoyed the views of the mountains. We are already planning to return with our kids so they can experience the ride and ogle the views!

Great tram ride with knowledgable guide. Went high up over Old Town Albuquerque. Bring coat in winter though because it gets quite cold.

This is an amazing trip. We loved every minute. Wish the restaurant was opened but they were not finished building it. Go early as the lies can be very long!

Easy to buy tickets, waiting on line that moved fast and then traveling up the mountain with a operator who explained the history of the tram and its impact on skiing was very informative

Technically, its the world's third longest single span tram, and is is the longest aerial tram in the United States. An excellent view of Albuquerque from the top. However, aside from an over-priced restaurant (which is under renovation until the summer of 2018), there's not...More

The 30 minutes tram ride was a great experience. My kids were very happy with this adventure. In December the peak had lot of wind.

It is not too small but crowded. It swings a lot to be honest. Conquer your fear but I want you to be aware of what you will face.

They don't provide anything, but you can purchase some from the stores in Albuquerque. The tram area itself has a gift shop, but I don't recall if they had winter-wear or not.

Sorry, I cannot help you. I am an Australian living in Thailand and I haven't seen snow for more than 50 years, and don't care to see it again, thank you very much.
