Out and About with LAOther: The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway

Want an easy ticket to a real winter wonderland?  Just hop aboard the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway and in a stunning 15 minute ride you'll be almost 9000 feet up on top of beautiful Mt. San Jacinto which, during most of the winter, looks a lot like it does in the above video.  (Not sure?  Just check the current weather right here.)

No snow chains required, and you can go swimming in Palm Springs when you get back down.  And people wonder why I love Southern California so much...


  1. How have I never heard of this until now!? Thanks for the heads up, Laurie. It looks fun!


  2. Did this once years ago but not with that much snow. These videos are great, Laurie!
