Palm Springs Aerial Tramway
PALM SPRINGS (CNS) – The operators of the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway
announced today the tram will begin extended summer hours during Memorial Day
“Our extended summer schedule provides guests the opportunity to
spend more time outside in cooler weather during the hot summer months,”
tramway General Manager Nancy Nichols said in a statement. “Visiting the
tramway after dark is a truly unique experience when guests can have dinner and
enjoy seeing the city lights across the Coachella Valley from 8,516 feet.”
Starting May 26, the last tram up on Fridays and Saturdays will be at
9 p.m. and the last tram down will be at 10:30 p.m., officials said.
Additionally, Peaks Restaurant will extend its hours to 8:30 p.m. and Pines
Café to 9:30 p.m.
Sunday, May 28, and Monday, May 29, will feature the extended hours
for Memorial Day. The first tram on May 29 will go up at 8 a.m., one hour
earlier than usual.
Since 1963, the tramway has carried visitors 2 1/2 miles from Palm
Springs to the San Jacinto Mountains, a trip that takes about 10 minutes. At an
elevation of more than 8,500 feet, Mountain Station is an entry point to more
than 50 miles of hiking trails.
