PALM SPRINGS, CA (October 8, 2021)
The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway will reopen on Monday, October 11, 2021 after its annual maintenance closure.
The first tram up will be at 10:00 a.m., the last tram up at 8:00 p.m. and the last tram down at 9:30 p.m. Tram cars depart at least every 30 minutes.
ALL VISITORS, REGARDLESS OF VACCINATION STATUS, ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR A MASK WHILE ON THE TRAM CAR.
Completed projects this year include repositioning of track ropes; changing pendant ropes, and the liners and bushings of pendant rope sheaves; and comprehensive mechanical and electrical testing of Tramway systems.
“Guest safety is always our number one concern at the Tramway,” says General Manager Nancy Nichols, “and our annual maintenance shutdown is critical in ensuring that.”
The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway—the world’s largest rotating tram car—opened in 1963. The Tram’s 80-passenger cars travel over two-and-one-half miles along the breathtaking cliffs of Chino Canyon, transporting riders to the pristine wilderness of the Mt. San Jacinto State Park.
During your approximately ten-minute journey, tram cars rotate slowly, offering picturesque and spectacular vistas of the valley floor below. Once you reach the Mountain Station—elevation 8,516 feet—enjoy two restaurants, observation decks, natural history museum, two documentary theaters, gift shop and over 50 miles of hiking trails.
