Another very well kept attraction, A must to see another real beauty spot located in Palms Springs. We left temperatures of high 80's in April travelled on the cable car to temperatures of mid 60's still very comfortable, walked along paths to see the most stunning views of the valley. Views not to be missed.

The food at the top of the tram is amazingly good. I've been visiting the tram now for 40 years and also need the lunch and a lift ticket.

We took the tram to the top for dinner and a quick show. the snow was still on the ground and the temp was a mere 48 degrees, a little cool. The view was outstanding and we could see the complete valley below. Our meal was ok, a little pricey but the service was good. I had the hamburger, which... More

We had the ribeye steak, which was overcooked and very thin. The appetizers looked great, but didn't try them. The drinks were great, I had the American mule and the Negroni, both fantastic. Best part of the meal was the service from Vanessa, she is awesome!

Food is bit costly but you pay for the place and... More
