Scenic Tram Ride & Rooftop Balcony

Summer above the city.

Escape the heat and enjoy breathtaking 360-degree views with a Summer Scenic Tram Ride at Snowbird. Our legendary red and blue Aerial Tram cabins whisk passengers along a 1.6-mile cable and up 2,900 vertical feet during the 13-minute trip to the top of Hidden Peak. Enjoy refreshments at The Summit and take a photo with the Salt Lake Valley, Twin Peaks and Mt. Baldy as your backdrop before taking the journey back down.

Elevate your experience—literally—with an open-air ride atop the Tram with the Rooftop Balcony Add-On. The first of its kind in the USA, it’s an experience you won’t want to miss. 

Note: A Summer Scenic Tram Ticket, 2024-25 Snowbird Season Pass or an All-Day Activity Pass is required to purchase the Rooftop Balcony Add-On.

  • Come prepared with appropriate footwear—high-heeled shoes and pumps are not allowed on the Tram rooftop balconies.

Tram Features
