Fantastic experience! A beautiful panoramic view up the mountain. Once up top there were excellent trails for hiking and trail running. Weather is a little cooler up top so be prepared. The bar and restaurant were a nice surprise and we greatly enjoyed them after a full afternoon of hiking. The views, service and food were excellent. The design and architecture of the entire complex was beautiful to see as well.
Hey, you HAVE TO GO THERE!! Sure it is expensive. But if you have the money, it is worth every penny. Terrible heat in Palm Springs. Wonderful 65F/18C on the top. Careful in winter time and with wild animals. I'm impressed by the brave investors who dared to finance the project. Awesome! Thank you!
The ride up has amazing views! Since its the holiday season, they had cut ornaments for sale. There are 3 trails, easy, moderate and expert (12 miles). The food is really great, too.
So cool! I didn't have much of an expectation going into this but WOW! I highly recommend sunset as the time of day. Bring WARM clothes! Seriously. If you can try to get on the tram that rotates, only one of the two are rotating around. Also, bring your dancing shoes! The whole experience is like a disco ride to the sky.
Tramway ride was a lot more fun than expected. It usually runs about every 20 minutes and you have to go up at your exact scheduled time on your ticket, but you can stay up on the mountain-top station as long as you want, as long as they're still open. The last team ride up is at 8pm. It's always 30 degrees cooler at the top, so bring a jacket.
