Palm Springs Aerial Tramway To Reopen This Friday

Palm Springs Aerial Tramway To Reopen This Friday

PALM SPRINGS, CA —

The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway announced Wednesday that it will reopen Friday.

The world’s largest rotating tram car will initially open Friday through Monday. The first car will head up each day at 8 a.m., with the last car down at 6 p.m.

The tramway has been closed since mid-March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Officials are requiring Tram-goers to adhere to a list of new policies aimed at curbing the spread of COVID-19 in order to ride, including:
— Reservations are required for all visitors;
— Tram cars will now depart approximately every 20 minutes to allow staff time to sanitize cars between each trip;
— Car capacities have been reduced to allow for social distancing;
— A portion of each car will be set aside for annual passholders;
— Face coverings must be worn inside the Valley and Mountain stations, and in the tram cars, but not in the state park; and
— Guests must submit to temperature screenings.

Did You Know – 40 people paid $1,000 each to participate in the first ride up the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway on Sept. 12, 1963.

At an elevation of 8,516 feet, Mountain Station offers visitors two restaurants, observation decks, a natural history museum, two documentary theaters and an entry point to more than 50 miles of hiking trails.

All annual passholders will see their passes extended due to the shutdown.

Officials warned potential visitors that only Long Valley will be open for outdoor recreation at this time due to fire danger.

Annual Passholders received an email stating: “Only Long Valley is open. The wilderness is closed to all hikers and campers…”

Additional information, including whether restaurants will reopen, was not immediately available.
