Tramway summer pass now available as temps heat up

PALM SPRINGS — The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway’s Summer Pass is back, and with new dates. As of April 1, guests can purchase a Tramway Summer Pass to escape the hot summer months and experience “chill at its peak” in temperatures 30-40 degrees cooler than on the valley floor.

The Summer Pass includes unlimited Tram admissions for the passholder, a 10% discount on additional Tram admissions (limit 4 per passholder), a 10% discount at Peaks Restaurant or Pines Café, and unlimited free parking for the passholder. Summer Passes are $85 for adults and seniors, and $45 for children ages 3-10. Beginning April 1, guests can purchase their Summer Pass online at, or in-person at the Tramway’s Valley Station. Summer Passes are valid April 1 through July 31, 2023.

Passholders can also enjoy more than 50 miles of hiking trails, picnic areas and campgrounds in the 14,000-acre pristine wilderness of the Mount San Jacinto State Park.

The Tram’s Mountain Station offers spectacular views stretching from the Salton Sea to the San Gorgonio Pass. Guests can also take advantage of two restaurants, a cocktail lounge, a gift shop, natural history museum, mobile app audio tours, and two documentary-style movies about the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway and the Mount San Jacinto State Park.

The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway is the world’s largest rotating tram car. Opened in 1963, the Tram’s 80-passenger cars travel along the breathtaking cliffs of Chino Canyon from the Valley Station (elevation 2,643 ft.) to the Mountain Station (elevation 8,516 ft.) in approximately 10 minutes.
