Ascend over the most stunning urban peaks of the Rio Grande Valley from the comfort of a tram car.

Sandia Peak Aerial Tramway is located in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This unique venue has transported over 1.2 million passengers since it opened in 1966 and has recently celebrated over 50 years of operation. The venue took two years to create with the help of helicopters. This tramway was inspired by a tramway in Europe. Upon arrival, visitors will reach a parking lot, and accessible parking is located on the upper parking lot of the lower terminal. An elevator will take you to the second floor, then reach the ticket office to ride the tram. 

Passengers can ride in one of two comfortable tram cars. The ride takes approximately 15 minutes to get to the top of Sandia Peak. You will ride 2.7 miles above deep canyons, and enjoy the stunning panoramic views over 11,000 miles. It takes you to an elevation of 10,300 feet. As you reach the crescent tops of the Sandia mountains, enjoy fine dining, casual dining, and shopping all year round.  During the winter season (Labor Day to Memorial Day), visitors can enjoy over 25 miles of ski slopes. During the summer (Memorial Day to Labor Day), visitors can enjoy over 100 hiking trails, seasonal events, and more. Located on the top of the crest is the TEN 3 restaurant, which has delicious appetizers, hand-crafted beers, and cocktails. Food options for fine dining and more casual options are available for everyone. The gift shop includes unique gifts and souvenirs such as apparel, decor, jewelry, and more. Other features of the tramway include a newly proposed coaster ride. 

Tickets can be purchased online to ride the tram. Ticket holders are encouraged to screenshot ticket barcodes for their convenience. Stay as long as you like on the top to soak in the views. Remember that the tram cars can take to 15 to 30 minutes to descend the tramway track. Passengers will be seated on a first-come, first-served basis. Guests are also encouraged to dress warm and bring water as the elevation change in temperature can be 20-30 degrees difference. Don't forget to bring a camera and take lots of pictures while you're here.
