Your enjoying the views of the snowcapped mountain top from your Swiss Chalet...but wait! It looks rather like desert down there! And there's a sea of enormous white windmills...Hmmm, this isn't the Alps - It's Palm Springs! The only place on earth where you can play tennis or a round of golf in the morning, head up to 8500 ft.... 更多
The P.S. Tramway Mountain Station is located at top of the tram, at 8516-feet above sea-level. After an 11-minute ride in a revolving tram-car, you reach the multi-level building which is the terminus for the tram-car ride up and offers a small bar, cafeteria, and, multi-level Peaks Restaurant, and outdoor patios, all of which offer great views of the valley... 更多
The facility itself is all about profit. The lookouts and conveyances (elevator, stairs, platforms, etc) are all low budget. The emphasis is on multiple points of sale for souvenirs and food. The movie room and film are equally lame and dated. So, while the tram is singularly impressive, the arrival facility is not.
We took the cable car up the mountain and enjoyed the view as it spun around. At the top they had a restaurant and bar. It seemed a little pricey, so I did not partake of the food and drink. Walking outside on some trails was actually fun and I enjoyed the fresh air.
A really not to be missed experience. Travel up through the mountains on the Aerial Tramway to the Mountain Station. This a great place from which to view the surrounding area or to walk the mountain trails.
This was the BEST thing we did in Palm Springs. It is breathtaking - in a good way! You can see the whole valley below. My recommendation is that it would be the PERFECT place to propose marriage to your special someone.
Stunning views of valley and mountains. Nice walking path. Sledding available in winter. 2 movies about San Jacinto Mountains and building the tram and replacing it with the new tram very interesting. Busy restaurant area with indoors and outdoor seating or you can bring your own food.
