One of the most spectacular – and breathtaking — places to catch and savor the Easter sunrise is at the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway’s Mountain Station, elevation 8,516 feet.

If you are looking for a way to combine the spiritual beauty of music and nature, this could be your ticket.

On Easter Sunday 2018, 3,443 people visited the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, according to Cara Youngman, public relations manger.

On Sunday, April 21, beginning at 5:30 a.m., you can celebrate Easter Sunrise Service with songs of faith, hope and joy by Abie Perkins and Natasha Carian, along with a special inspirational Easter message by Pastor Robert Sneed.

The first tram car up that morning is 4:45 a.m. Reduced tram fares will be in effect until 7:30 a.m. with round-trip $15.50 for adults and seniors, and $12.25 for children ages 3-10.

Beginning at 6:30 a.m., breakfast will be served in Pines Café until 10 a.m. If purchased by 7:30 a.m., the cost for the Ride ‘N’ Breakfast combination, which includes round-trip tram fare, is $25.95 for adults and seniors, and $16.95 for children ages 3-10.
