I've taken this tram ride three times, and assuming you are dressed for the cold, winter is definitely the time to go. The vistas along the ride are spectacular, and the views from the top are well worth a little cold. Don't go if the...More

The ride up the mountain was smooth and the views were beautiful. We were able to take pictures in all directions. We took a hike at the top-you could definitely feel the altitude, though.

The ride to the top of Sandia Mountain gives you a view for miles. Once at the top, step out on the observation deck. Arrive early, eat at the restaurant at the bottom, and wait for your time to ride. The wait could be long...More

Definitely a must do when you're visiting Albuquerque, New Mexico. One of the best view from the mountain top. Bring a jacket, it's cold up there. Stay for the sunset.
