  • Take Insect Repellent! We didn't need any jackets or sweaters on this trip at the end of August. Great experience! Wonderful views and friendly, accommodating staff. With all of the rain we've had, I would recommend taking some type of "Insect Repellent". Also, if you have a pet, they do have accommodations up there for pets. I saw 4 or 5 cages for pets. The gift shop is outrageous in pricing, and I bet you can find same items for less at other locations. Definitely, They need more bathrooms.

  • Riding the tram is well worth doing! Adults for $25 and kids for $15 isn't bad for the amazing experience you get in return. I'm scared of heights, so the "do one thing every day that scares you" requirement was well met. As you're going up, there's a tower at the top, and we thought the trip would end there, but it's the 1.5 mile span after the tower that is most dramatic. The scenery is absolutely beautiful. The experience is like flying, but without the hassle of an airport. Try to go at an off-peak time, because the cars can indeed be overcrowded. A position by the front window of the tram is ideal. Bring a windbreaker or jacket, because it will be a lot cooler and a lot more windy at the top than where you started. The views from the top are fantastic!

  • This is an amazing place to visit! We spent our time up at the top exploring the trails and going right up to the edge and taking in the spectacular views. It was awesome! Really enjoyed the tram ride both ways. Loved the descriptions given by the tram guides. We met a couple of ladies who had hiked up the mountain (4 1/2 hours) and were riding back down - that explains the one-way ticket option!!!

  • Really nice for sunset, but bring a jacket if you come at that time (even in the summer). I would say the place is way more ideal for winter where you can ski, but the 15 minutes tramway honestly was an adventure in itself. When arriving there, parking was plenty, but prepare for the long drive up! Before the tram ride, you can buy goods at the gift shops with many Sandia Peal-related merchandise. Up those 10,000+ feet is pretty nice with some exhibits (both indoor and outdoor). Overall, the price we paid may not exactly correctly correlate with all the activities there were to do, but the memory of it was still with us! There's also a restaurant before the ride, and soon one to come at the top. A small no-fee admission ski museum after your ride is there to quickly look around to wrap up the experience!

  • An amazing place to visit! The tram is very smooth and will bring you all the way up to the top of this mountain and you have an awesome view. If you can do this at Sunset, I highly suggest it. We almost didn't get to go because it was a little windy but thank goodness the wind calm down and we got to the top right at Sunset. It was beautiful and I would highly recommend doing this to anyone
