My husband and I rode the tram and greatly enjoyed the views of the mountains. We are already planning to return with our kids so they can experience the ride and ogle the views!

One of the best aerial tramways on the planet. The trip takes you over some amazing geology and beautiful scenery. There's even visible debris from the 1955 TWA Flight 260 crash. Read up on the geology of Sandia Mountains before the trip and you'll have...More

Great tram ride with knowledgable guide. Went high up over Old Town Albuquerque. Bring coat in winter though because it gets quite cold.

Also the best time to ride the tram is in the morning to about 2PM, so the sun is not in your eyes. In the late afternoon, you look right at the sun.

It is not too small but crowded. It swings a lot to be honest. Conquer your fear but I want you to be aware of what you will face.

They don't provide anything, but you can purchase some from the stores in Albuquerque. The tram area itself has a gift shop, but I don't recall if they had winter-wear or not.
