Palm Springs Aerial Tramway Tickets and Prices

From
$14.25

Ascend two-and-one-half miles to a pristine wilderness aboard the world's largest rotating tram car.  

The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway constructed in Chino Canyon on the north edge of Palm Springs - about two hours by car from Los Angeles and San Diego  - did not just happen. This is the  dream of a young electrical engineer named Francis F. Crocker to "go up there where it's nice and cool".

Crocker's dream began in 1935 while he was on a trip to Banning, California, with newspaper publisher Carl Barkow. Mopping his brow in the heat of the day, Crocker gazed on longingly at the still snow-capped peak of Mt. San Jacinto 10,834 feet high. At that moment, "Crocker's Folly,'' as it was soon dubbed by one newspaper woman, was born - a tramway up the sheer cliffs of Chino Canyon.
