In the Winter, visitors that aren’t used to snow can visit the top of the mountain to ski, sled, snowshoe and have a snowball fight with friends and family. Then, they can go back down the mountain and say goodbye to Winter just like that. Now, this Michigander loved that option!

It is forty degrees colder at the top and a completely different universe. Traveling on the tram allows you to soar through four different temperate zones that is analogous to traveling from Africa to Alaska.

The views are spectacular and a must see! The Palm Springs Tramway cars depart almost every half hour from 10 a.m., Monday-Friday; 8 a.m. weekends. Last car up is 8 p.m. while the last car down is at 9:45 p.m. Click here to purchase your tram tickets.
