    Amazing.Not only were the veiws beautiful, but the landing area and the High Finance restaurant were very impressive. The green chili stew proved to be a very hearty meal, once the 85 degree air at the base developed into an ice storm at 10,380 foot elevation! Can’t wait to go again!! Too bad dogs arent allowed, our pup would love it!

    The view from the top was AWESOME!!! We were there two weeks ago and it was beautiful. The weather was great and even though it was a little cold and windy at the top it was worth every penny. It is a MUST DO if you go to the area.

    It was by surprise that I found myself headed up Tramway to the Sandia Aerial Tram (no, I hadn’t been kidnapped—I had just arrived in NM to visit my sister and I was told right after hopping in her car that we were going to the tram). I had no idea what to expect, except the last time I had been on a large cable gondola, I was seven and I was frightened out of my mind. Being told we were going up the world’s longest aerial gondola, I wasn’t sure what to think. I’ve gotta say, the tram ride is fun. There’s not much at the top aside from an over-priced restaurant (and ski slopes/what will return to being ski slopes in the winter). But the tram gets you get all the benefits of hiking to the peak without having to do any of the work.It appears that the tram chaperons who head up and down all day long are more inclined to discuss the sights while on the way up. That means, on the way down, you can ask all the questions you want. Here are some I asked:•What is the rated life of the cables?•How much does the drive cable stretch over the course of its life?•How do the water ballast tanks attach to the car?•Do the two trams arrive at the exact same time?•How heavy are the counterweights?•Why are the cables sagging?If you’re worried about any of the answers to the above questions, I would recommend not asking. But, seriously, enjoy.

    Long lines for a short, crowded tram ride. The view from the top is very good, of course. If I do it again I will hike to the top of the mountain and take a one way trip down on the tram.

    Realty cool ride and the view from the top is amazing. Be aware that those who are susceptible can get motion sickness from the tram ride.
