Sandia Peak Tramway
This tramway lifts you from the Sandia foothills through five natural life zones to the top of the Sandia Mountains, more than 10,000 feet above sea level. Time and terrain seem to move in harmony as passengers scout the rugged canyons and lush forests for bighorn sheep and deer. The tram docks alongside the High Finance Restaurant . This is a must see. With 2.7 miles of sky-view travel, be sure to visit this spot while in Albuquerque.
Took my Grandsons 10 & 8 and they enjoyed it very much. I'm not wild about heights, but everything rode so smooth it was hard to tell you were that high off the ground. Bring a jacket! It was 55 degs. at the bottom and 32 at the top with 13 mph winds.
I took a ride on the Tramway in July. It was really warm (hot but dry) in the valley so the change was welcome. With a temp of 100 degrees in the valley the temp on the mountain was around 54. I am moving to New Mexico. I hope they have a year long pass.
I've been to ABQ several times...my father lives there. I think it's great. weather and overall atmosphere is relaxing. there are many great restaurants. and i have ridden on the tramway several times as well...it's a must see while there. other things i would recomend would be the hot air balloon festival in october and checking out sante fe.
What a fun thing to do, we live here and do it several times a year. Restaurant at top is ok, good for a snack and drinks, but their overall food is only OK, used to be one of the best. View is what it is all about up here, watch a sunset but make reservations early as this books up fast. Longest tram ride in the world (in length, not time). Sweet views, a must do when coming to Albuquerque.
Quick ride to the top of the mountian beats the long drive around the back of it. It's a great view--especially at night--nothing beats city lights. Also, great in the winter when you want to go skiing. Wear shorts to the terminal and change to ski gear at the top--it will be cold!
It was one of the greatest views that we have ever seen. The air was nice and crisp. We are glad we took the trip up right around 7:00p.m. for a nice dinner and a unforgetable SUNSET... We can't wait til we return...
If heights do not bother you, this is a spectacular ride aboard the world's longest tramway. Once past it's only support tower between the base station (w/restaurant), and the station (w/restaurant) atop Sandia Peak at 10,000+ feet, you (literally) soar with the eagles for over a mile, with hundreds of feet below you to the western slopes of the Sandias. As an Albuquerquean, I will first say that the safety record of the tram is very impressive, only one serious "incident" in forty years! Safety is always paramount, and the tram will be shut down, sometimes for hours if wind conditions are too dangerous. If you are acrophobic, enjoy the alternative Sandia Crest Highway (a National Scenic Road) to the top (but not to the Tramway station), from NM-14, the "Turquoise Trail" backroad to Santa Fe from Albuquerque. Same great 180-degree views though, with a giftshop, and grill.
