At over 10,000 ft, Sandia Peak was about 30 deg (F) cooler than the starting point. From the top you can see the mountain ridges, nearly all of Albequerque, and the lower land on the other side of the peak (where the ski slopes are).

My nephew and son and husband and I took this tram tour early in our Albuquerque stay. what a great way to see the area. It was totally worth the price to learn more about the area and hike around a bit at the top.

As a local we forget how wonderful it is to take visitors around our city. It was over 100 degrees at the base and 73 at the peak. Even though trails are limited right now it was soooo worth the trip.

Yes, 25 a piece. Students (under 20 yrs) and military get a discount. Also you can get one way which is $15...hike up and ride the tram down. Its very much worth it! Enjoy
