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. As legendary as the mountain itself, Snowbird's new red and blue Aerial Tram cars 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. At the top, enjoy refreshments at The Summit and take a photo with the Salt Lake Valley, Twin Peaks and Mt. Baldy as your backdrop before enjoying the journey back down.

New this summer, 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: The Summer Scenic Tram is now closed for the season. The Winter Scenic Tram has a tentative opening day of Thanksgiving, November 23.



  • The Tram and the Hidden Peak terminal are ADA-accessible. 
  • Tram service may be canceled due to weather conditions or other circumstances. Mountain bikes are not permitted on the Tram. Check out the Summer Report for the current lift status.

Tram Features

  • You no longer need to be a Tram mechanic to ride on the roof—a balcony has been added as an available upgrade to the top of the Tram for the summer months, with a limited capacity for remarkable sightseeing.
  • Floor-to-ceiling windows offer uninterrupted breathtaking views of the mountain and Salt Lake Valley.
  • Take a glimpse of the mountain below through 3 sections of 3' x 3' glass floor panels for a thrilling ride to the top every time.
